Surprise Mystery Person Contest
This morning I am going to shake things up by having a surprise mystery person contest. You have to identify this woman. Let the contest begin!
Domestic Update: The Peacocks have Landed!
To all you nay-sayers out there who felt Handsome did not get the job done, I say Ha! We have new baby peacocks! I went out yesterday and found two of the eggs have hatched. Little Rufus and Peggy Sue are doing well. The new arrivals have generated much excitement in Chickie Town. Lovie is getting more help than she needs from the Chickies, who are right in the middle of things. They all want babies now too. Lovie is busy with the remainder of her eggs, so Honey has sort of adopted little Rufus. He follows here around the coop, and he is the apple of her eye. Another chickie got in the laying box, and sits and rolls the fake egg. Another went and built a new nest in the corner and laid an egg. They all have their Mamma juices flowing, but short a rooster, I fear their efforts will be in vain. Perhaps Lovie will let them share in the joy of raising the babies.
Right now, two of the eggs have hatched, but in checking this morning, Lovie was on the nest, and the babies, so I could not see if any more eggs had hatched. There was one egg yesterday that tried to hatch, but the little feller inside just finally gave up, and in the end did not make it. So, we have two looking good, and two more eggs that might hatch today. Video of the festivities is attached below.
