John and Lilli raised baby chicks in March and April, but decided to get fertilized eggs for a broody hen. As if the first 10 baby chickens weren't enough, they got 12 eggs! The broody mama sat and sat... until the little ones began to peck their way out.
The first mistake came in the form of a SPAM can used as a water dish. The little chick fell in the water and drown. Sad, sad day.
Happily, more baby chicks hatched. In fact ALL 12 eggs hatched.
Next tragedy.... the big chicken ganged up on the mama chicken and her babies and murdered all but 4 babies. I got in the coop with the chickens and screamed at them and poked them to save the babies and to collect their poor dead little bodies. Hannah came to help but was only able to hold a bucket in her out stretched hand. She couldn't even look in my direction.
... the teen chickens are in their ugly teen stage and one began to crow so it found a new home....
... the big chickens are slowing down on egg production and will soon become dinner. :)
Actually, Prom activities didn't start too early because the same day as Prom was State Solo competition. She competed in the Mezzo-soprano division. She did well even though she should have been in the Soprano division.
We rushed home from Portland to get to a CET staff meeting.
Then she was able to party with her friends. I assume she had fun. She doesn't really talk about stuff any more.
