While I was gone my SIL and nephew came over for the weekend. He discovered that I had a mama duck and 4 babies in the pond. Sunday morning there were 3 babies. Monday morning 2 swimming and one hurt/dying. I had the kids catch those two.
Monday morning I had one chasing a pea hen, but that hen made it known that she was not his mama. So I had the kids collect it and add it to the "collection".
Sunday my son and DIL went to a home birth party. They came home with a chick. Seems someone had lost all of them but one and wanted a new home for it so.....
I had a chick to care for. I guess God knew that that chick needed buddies.
