Our cute little chicks have finally hatched!

Yesterday mum’s lovely little chicken ‘Friendly’ hatched 2 of her eggs into fluffy little chicks – here’s a photo of these angelic yellow bundles of fluff – one of these chicks is only 1 hour old – there was 1 chick at lunchtime and by 1pm the second one had emerged and puffed itself up already!

Hopefully a couple more chicks will arrive today or tomorrow and add to the brood that mum’s other chicken Penny hatched earlier this month – here’s her little clutch of chicks:

My favourite photos – A tiny bird’s nest

I was fortunate enough to accidentally come across this birds nest that had been built inside a paper bag in the garden, with these tiny eggs nestling in it. Luckily we hadn’t disturbed the birds and we’ve since seen the mother flying in and sitting on the eggs. Don’t these eggs look like chocolate mini-eggs?! I’ve never seen anything like it in real life before, so I’m very excited to see the babies when they hatch and start to leave the nest.

Any idea what kind of bird’s eggs these are? The mother is very tiny and brown – so we thought it might be a wren, but a robin has also been suggested – please leave me a comment if you have any idea!
