New Peeps on the Block

We have new peeps. I've tried to get pictures but the mama hen is so protective. Each time I get close enough for a photo, she clucks the little ones under a bush or some other cover.
One time when I persisted, she came racing out from under a shrub to flog me and all the dogs that happened to be nearby.
I've been flogged many times so I knew what was coming but the dogs were ill prepared and she sent them scurrying in all directions.
I know there are some dogs that would simply turn on her and eat her like a biscuit, but most of my dogs are older and for the most part they are wussy's.
I've counted seven, so far. Two black ones, two brown ones and three yellow/white ones. They are about two inches tall and weigh about the same as a hummingbird.
The one picture I did manage to get is fuzzy but it's the best I've been able to do so far. Hopefully in the next day or so I can get a decent picture of the little tike's. We don't plan on keeping them all so anyone out there who'd like to own a cute Watson chick, just let me know.
