More peeps hatching
This morning when I went out to see how the chickens were doing this is what I saw. The momma on the right has six chicks. But what surprised me was the mamma on the left in her box. Looks like she’s been hatching out some new chicks and still is.
They are born at different times. The one on the right looks like it just hatched. They tend to take some time once hatched to generate enough energy to move around. I think they sit around and digest the egg yoke until they can get around.
Hike to retrieve the quad runner
After taking care of the chickens I decided a hike was in order. I needed to retrieve the quad runner I left up in the hills the other day. I’ve needed the tools I left up there more than once in the last couple days so I needed to get it.

Hopped on the machine, nice
It’s always nice to hop on a machine after a good hike up to it. I rode on down the hill back to my house where I needed a nap as the day was warm out.
Any distressed chicks
It was already late in the day after that nap. I went out and puttered around the yard and did some chair hopping and peep watching. Because the little chicks are so small when they hatch they can squeeze through the one inch chicken wire so it’s good to check on them to see if any are in any sort of distress that they’ve gotten themselves into. They did good today and all stayed out of trouble.
Makes you realize
That was my day for a good one. Got some good exercise which is always good for an older guy. Unfortunately it also makes one realize just how old one is. :O)
