Hope and Chickens

It's finally happened: I went out to the garage today to check on Momma Fluff, and found a little, still-wet Silkie chick underneath her! We were about to give up hope for the eggs, and I'm thinking about naming the little baby 'Hope'. Here are some pics of the adorable baby!

Here are some other pics of chicken from around the yard. I took them with our new camera, a Nikon D90, a very nice camera.

I'm so excited!

That's a Barred Rock. Her name is Pepper.

Thanks you!

Pepper is just beautiful.
I have a suspicion one of our chicks may be one...
Fingers crossed.
Keep us updated on the little chickadee

"Hope" is precious, chickengirl!
And that is one awesome camera- it takes great pictures.
Of course it helps to have such beautiful models to pose for you, too!
