Exciting news here at Brigadoon Farm! Today when I was collecting eggs I had a first time ever experience. When I gather eggs I have to remove all the eggs from under the 2 broody hens (yes, we have co-parents here in Boulder Colorado).
"X and a Dot, Dot, Dot . . ." As I was doing so today, I FELT A HEARTBEAT! How cool is that? Let me tell you, I didn't expect that one. It gave me quite a shot of adrenaline. Even more amazing, this was the egg that I accidentally gathered a week ago, and had in the house overnight before I realized it was marked for hatching. What a miracle!
Ain't life grand?
