    This is my hen Ginger, she decided to hatch her babies last night, I could only get a pic of one of the babies because she would not let me pick her up to see how many more she has. If this baby is a girl I'm going to call her Hanna.

    Ginger is my crazy girl, She will sit on any of the other hens eggs, she tried to hatch a water hose spicket thingy last year, she has also sat on my mama goose Beauty eggs and Beauty had to chase her out. Gingers eggs are brown the white eggs are my hen Blondie she is white. I had to bring Ginger inside the house yesterday be cause of the storm she had her nest in my garden in front of the house. The baby came from one of her eggs.

    She looks like some I used to raise for eggs, I think they were called Comets - sweet temperment.

    Well Ginger goes back outside today to her nest in my front yard.

    Zuzie- You can have a baby chick

    Julie- Where in NC you live? You are not nutso chickens are fun and the are very smart. You could get a hen and your neighbor won't mind, now if you get a rooster you are asking for trouble cause they are loud pecially when they star crowing at 4 am. My neighbors are use to the noise of my ZOO.

    Anne- Ginger tried to hatch the hose sprayer thing for a couple of weeks then she went in the barn and sat on a PVC elbow for a couple of weeks. She is a trip, I guess she really is the mama hen, last time she hatch 12 eggs.

    Love the baby! I love chickens...we raised them for years. We don't have any now but DH would love to get them again..he loves country eggs. He is tooo lazy to build a chicken house though. I don't want them to run loose- they scratch up my flower beds and make me into a mean Mama :lol: :lol:

    She's cute!!
    What a funny momma she has! lol

    I have chickens that run around my yard. I don't know where they nest, but every month, there are a bunch of babies following one of the hens around. Last week I saw 6 running after their momma.

    Oh my gosh!!! They are so adorable. Ginger is beautiful!
    We had hundreds of chickens at my grandmas, but my favorite was Hazel. I just love chickens. Here is a photo of the tiles I painted and put over the stove. Also note chicken tea kettle!
    Your new baby is precious!
