Spring Chicken

Today’s writing prompt:

Spring chicken.

Inspired by 17 fluffy chicks chirping in my incubator 🙂

I’m sure most of us are well and truly chocolated-out 😦

I’ll stick to regular eggs for a while now!

Anzac all grown up!

Back in late April, I posted a photo of a tiny chicken I rescued after it fell out of the nest and looked to be dead, ice cold, pecked by the other chooks and laying in the sawdust. I put it under a light for a few hours then later that night, even though it hadn’t improved very much, placed it back under the mother who was sitting on the rest of the eggs. I expected to find it dead in the morning but instead it was chirping brightly 🙂  I named it Anzac for its spirit and hatch date but had no idea whether it was a hen or rooster.

And . . . here she is . . . the beautiful Frizzle hen in the foreground. Just five months old and she’s just laid her first egg 🙂

What a whopper!

I have a small pen of young bantams who’ve been producing four cute little eggs most days for the past few weeks . . . but yesterday I found the whopper on the left! I found a similar one a couple of weeks back, my first bantam double-yolker in almost thirty years of keeping chooks. I had lots of standard ones when I had bigger chooks but none from the bantams – anything the big guys can do, the little ones can, too 🙂
