Today has one stand out highlight, with no competition. The chicks have arrived!! I went over to visit them this afternoon. They are so cute.
So far eight out of twenty-one have hatched, they are happily sitting in a little box, wandering around and cheeping enthusiasticly. I was surprised how noisy they are, you can hear them from the next room. I gave them lots of cuddles and was rewarded by one of them falling asleep in my hands – very exciting!
They are so tiny and new that they keep falling asleep, they flop right over with their heads on the floor. At first this caused me a bit of distress, they looked like they were dying, but all was well, they just like to take a nap.
