Chicks a-hatchin’ at Belvedere!

Six chicks hatched yesterday in kindergarten!
This is especially welcome news, given the premature death of an older Polish chick over the weekend. The surviving older chick, Chocolate/Emily/Rosabella/Sleepmo (each class has its own name for the chicks), was overwhelmed to suddenly have so much new company. But the Silkie quickly adapted to its role as Big Chick in the Brooder, stomping around and giving a peck to any newborns that fell asleep.
