Bucket of Chicken(s)

A balmy 12 above 0 this morning.  Must be winter.  No one told this little lady.
Son came in the house carrying her under one arm and a bucket in the other.  The bucket full of little chicken "nuggets".  Fourteen of them in all.  Here's hoping that they're a hardy bunch.  The weather is only getting colder.  Mama has her job cut out for her.  She has a heat lamp to  help.

These little ones could be giving us eggs by March.  Seems a long way off. :)

Don't forget it's Farmhouse Friday.  Stop on over at http://www.therenegadefarmer.com/ and see what's up on the farm.

Welcome Donna and Tribal Horse Designs. The tractor is my son's Farmall H that he restored a couple of years ago. Day 2 and the chicks are still doing well.
