Here are two baby chicks that were recently born. Once we found them one evening in one of the other chicken houses, we moved them over to the nursery where they would be able to grow up and bond with Dovie. These two don’t have names yet. We are not sure which one of the rosters is the father. We do know that bantam females adopt other chicks, and Dovie is very protective of them. We usually wait about 6 to 8 weeks before we let little chicks outside, but this is our first mama and babies together, so it has been even more exciting to watch them grow.

When I was younger, my dearest friends jokingly called me “Contessa Grigia”. They would yell “Contessa” from the balcony as I walked to their apartment. They also called me “Ninja Turtle”, since my backpack was full of books. Contessa Grigia is more attractive to me than Ninja Turtle, although Ninja Turtle is pretty funny!
My username became “Contessa Grigia” (Countess Gray), with a chuckle. Now, it is a matter of owning it. LOL!
