secret is out of the bag er um nest

Photobucket

When I was a kid, my uncle told me that if I ever found a nest, I was not to tell anyone...I was to keep it a secret. Well, at least until the eggs hatch.

Our Aracuna Bantum Hen picked an area outside of the safe-zone to build her nest. At last count, it seemed she was sitting on at least eighteen eggs.

This morning...it appears that at least one of them has hatched!

Now the fun begins! PEEP!

Such a tiny being beginning life. I wish it and any others luck.

What fun! Sweet wee thing. I found a purple finch nest yesterday in a hanging basket outside of my LYS. 4 wee fuzzy hatchlings with tiny yellow beaks reaching skyward.

We kept poultry twenty years ago. They are so fun to follow.
