It never rains but it pours. A neighbor called and asked if we wanted their one single chick who was born a few days ago. This one has a mother, but the neighbors aren't equipped to handle a mother and baby by themselves (if nothing else, the other chickens devour the specialized chick-starter food).
So we brought home Crackle in a paper bag.
He's mightily annoyed to be separated from his mama, as you can imagine. He's cheeping fit to kill.
Here he is with Snap, who backed into a corner, not sure what to make of this creature. We installed them in a bigger box after this shot was taken.
All we need is a Pop and we'll have a nice little trio!
As an aside, looky what I just found in the greenhouse:
I guess we'll be breaking out the wasp spray tonight...
