Hatching Chickens, Part 2.
Ok, ok, I admit I was naughty and made you wait, but it was still a work in progress (a WIP as it were!!)
Where were we.....that's right, after about 6 hours of not so hard labour from the mother, (I could nearly go again if this was all labour entailed, especially if I was allowed to sew during the 3 weeks sitting on the eggs and people bought me food!!!).. but energy zapping effort from the chicken, we have reached this point-
They come out completely exhausted, the heat energy from being sat on gets them over the line. Here is mother sneaking across to warm him up again, that is the chook version of Angelina clutching the latest child tightly to her as the flash goes off.
A last peek before I allow Mum to take over.
So, how did they turn out, Dad's impatient personality, Mum's 5 toes?. Well I wont leave you in suspense, when dry they look far different- look at the cute fluffy legs!
My DD has been having a huge amount of fun with them, the latest one hatched is in my loungeroom with a splint on it's funny leg....don't even ask! If I get motivated Lazarus may get his own entry...DS thinks he looks like a pirate with a wooden leg!!
Back to quilting soon!! Tracey
