And then there were four!


The little dark brown one was hatched sometime during the night.  He's cute!  They all are.  I don't think that the two remaining eggs will hatch.  Hattie is still keeping one of them warm, though, so we'll see.  She has rolled the other remaining egg out of the nest.  The babies have already gotten into trouble--one popped through a tiny hole in the fence and was wandering around with the chickens and squeaking.  Luckily I was outside when that happened.  I'm not sure what the chickens would have done to him.  I've found all the holes now and there should be no more episodes like that.  Roger is not sure what to think of the babies.  If they run at him, he runs away, but other times he tries to push them around with his beak.  Daisy just ignores them and keeps out of their way.  It's too much commotion for her!  Here is the family when Hattie came out to get something to eat and drink.  Such a cute little family!
