Eye of Newt?



Eye of the Tiger?

Well, actually it's not an eye at all. It's a baby chick inside an egg being set upon by a fluffy blue Cochin hen. She is one of several that Liz has brooding down in the heifer barn. We went a'candling last night and got to see this tiny Belgian Bearded Danver embryo flipping and blipping around inside its shelly chamber...like a little nautilus without the curves.

There are quite a few eggs in a similar state down there, just waiting for the days to pass until hatching time.

There are also a couple-few eggs up here at the house, waiting to be sold to hungry customers. No chickies inside these, I promise. That's for you, Joe. lol
