The next couple of days should provide us with some new members for the hen pen.

Dad isn’t walking around with a cigar under his wing  needless to say.  Just being a cockerel.

We have to set up the nursery tomorrow a day earlier than we thought.  We are out to dinner tomorrow night…… Might take them with us.
