Chicken Update

Have built a run for the chicks when they are born (hopefully!) on Thursday. It's amazing what you can do with some odd bits of wood, a staple gun, and a roll of chicken wire...

We candled the eggs the other day and five of them looked solid (i.e. so dark that we couldn't see through) and the sixth one looked clear, just like an egg through the fridge. I marked that one with a pencil so I would know which it was and I planned to remove it this morning -- but when I went to check on her she had already destroyed that egg for me -- so I am finally going to admit that she must know what she is doing and I am going to let her do it in peace...! :)
