And, just to give credit to those who helped me create these pictures I have to thank my nine-year-old for setting the scene and my birds for laying such gorgeous eggs.
Also, what fun is Easter without babies? For me, Easter symbolizes not only the sacrifice made for me, but Spring, new beginnings, and new life. So I'm including pictures of our newest babies. Two little Plymouth Rock pullets and two Embden geese. The chickens should be girls, but we don't know if the geese are girls, boys, or one of each. When taking these pictures I did learn we have a natural photo bomber! That chicken is a little creepier than I thought a baby chick could be.
In the interest of full disclosure, the pictures taken of the baby birds were taken March 31st so they are most definitely bigger now. This post was scheduled before its release date and the birds may already be living outside with the rest of the flock.
