Seven baby chicks

Three days old and the first day out of the nest. They are enjoying a drink of water.

This Auntie Molly coming over to see what is peeping.

Mother Polly teaching the chicks how to find little bugs, by scratching up the dirt.

The little ones had a great time in the sun and exploring the yard.

Auntie Molly really wants her own family. Sorry all of the boys have found new homes. Just girls around here now. Polly had three eggs when the last boy left. I am still trying to figure out how she ended up with seven babies. Is this one for the books?
