Flat As A Pancake and Motherbound


I'm on the edge of my seat. Waiting for June to hatch a couple of eggs. Any time now I should be hearing little peeps from under her. She is a Buff Japanese Black-tailed Bantam, so she is small. Hopefully I can catch her and the little ones to bring them inside until the peeps are big enough to meet the rest of the chickens. June is a bit flighty, so it should be a challenge. She really doesn't appreciate me popping in and looking at her sitting on her eggs. Just keeping my fingers crossed here!

Well, we are on day 24 and they should have hatched by 21 days. I'll wait a few days longer and if there aren't any peeps...I'll kick her off of her nest, screaming and trying to pinch my fingers off and get rid of the eggs. Poor June, just just wanted to be a mommy!
