Family Photo Friday

Hold onto your heart! This week’s photo shows four of my first little chicks in their brooder. In the back is Gracie. You can see how very timid she was then and how she seems to be hiding her side with the strange lump.

When I took this photo, I wasn’t sure if Gracie was going to survive. At the time, I thought it might be the last one I ever took of her. Yet amazingly she grew to become the leader of my little flock. She has been an inspiration to me in so many ways. She is, after all, “My Best Girl Ever.”

Close by Gracie is Rudy, my little Rhode Island Red. (Soon I will share a photo of her and her own first hatchling.) Towards the front are The Emperor and The Empress, not quite the regal looking pair of Brahmas they would grow up to be, but they were definitely happy chicks eager to do all of the things chicks do.

Thanks for joining me in this little look back. Who would have ever imagined my shy little Gracie would be practically famous all over the world? Not me!

You can read more about all of my chickens on this page.

I will do my best to post each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Every “Like,” “Follow,” and “Comment” is truly appreciated!
