Blue, Lavender, and Salmon Chicks hatched to Little Sister on May 26 2013

Blue, Lavender, and Salmon Chicks hatched to Little Sister, the sympathy brooder, on May 26 2013

One lavender orpington, one blue orpington, and one salmon faverolle. I had to help the blue hatch, but we appear to have three healthy chicks snuggled under momma’s downy feathers against this cool, rainy spring weather.

PS. Can anyone name the poem that the title comes from?

    And honoured among foxes and pheasants by the gay house
    Under the new made clouds and happy as the heart was long,
    In the sun born over and over,
    I ran my heedless ways,
