Peep peep!!

This morning when i checked on my broody hens i heard peeping!!

Yay! Another baby chick!! This is number two so far this summer. Mama hen is still sitting on about 5 eggs, so i'm hoping we'll get a couple more in the next day or two.

It's so cute! It has a dark gray/black body with a reddish face. i'm not sure what kind it came from a medium brown egg. i'm guessing mama was a Buff Orpington or Delaware and this little one looks more like papa, who is a dark brown/red banty.

i still have two other setting hens, so after all our chicken drama with missing eggs, missing chicks, egg swapping and chick stealing...i really hope we end up with a few more chicks this summer.
