Cliche as it is, I present you with the Circle of Life (can you hear Sir Elton John?)After 21 days of diligent brooding, Little Sister hatched three chicks on May 25. Three wee damp fuzzballs so small they sit within the palm of my hand. 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?
