A happy day!

I wish I could say the pins are out of my hand, not until Wednesday. BUT....

We have a brand new baby chich that hatched last night!!! It is a Serama (who would have guessed, eh?) from hatching eggs I got from my friend, Laura, of Castle Delight Seramas. I have waited so long to hatch some babies from her eggs!  This hatch was awful. Because of my hand injury and not feeling so great, I would forget to turn them on schedule and several times, the humidity got way too low before I caught it.  Next time...we will have a much better success rate, I am sure.

So "Tidbit" is an awfully lucky and strong little baby with a huge will to live. This is the tiniest little baby chick I have seen, much less ever hatched myself. From head to tail, it is only 1.75 inches long....that includes it's beak!

I'm calling it "Tidbit" for now...once we can tell the gender, it will get a *real* name.

under the heat lamp

The ash trays that I use for biddies food and water (with the glass marbles to prevent accidental drowning) is 4.5 inches across. You can see just how tiny Tidbit is.

Finally...something I am able to do with my injured hand <3

Have a great weekend!

Popping in

...just to say I am alive and a hand injury is just the absolute worst! Surgery and two pins, cast off later this week and I will be back into the swing of things around here.

Here's something beautiful, just to share.

Have a wonderful Sunday! See you back here real soon!
