Will I never learn? I am a terrible chick-killer. See black mama? She hatched out three lovely little black and white chicks today, two of whom are visible in the picture above. Also visible in the picture above is a dish of water, in which chick number three drowned this afternoon, after only a few hours of life outside the shell. It was a pretty gross discovery. Oh well, not all little fluffy chicks are meant to live, I guess. Now yellow mama has two and black mama has two. So may it remain!
