Fun with chicks

Our great-nephew Jordan was supposed to go with his granny today, but he was less than excited. She couldn't figure out what was going on.
She called Jilda to talk for a while early this morning and she told his granny that we had new baby chicks. Jilda told her that he could stay with us until this afternoon.
Nanna covered the phone and called to him asking if he wanted to stay with us. He did. I had a feeling he'd want to.
He spent much of the day peeking over the edge of the brooder watching the feathery little critters.
I asked if he wanted to hold one. He did and I snapped this picture.
I'm sure it will grow old because Sunday we'll have 12 more if they all hatch. Soon when they get bigger we'll slowly introduce them into the main chicken pen.
We should have eggs o-plenty by summer's end.
Happy weekend.


  1. This one brings back memories. Seeing Jordan holding the chick, takes me back to the country and 1944. Mama used a light bulb to hatch and care for the eggs. I wanted to write a book, "My mama was a light bulb" but it never made it. LOL
    good entry..

  2. Dear Rick, I think what we are seeing on Jordan's face is the word and the emotion and the glory of JOY. Thank you for sharing. Peace.

  3. This photo tells it all. A happy little boy showing how he love this little fluffy creature. I hope he's still eating eggs. lol...
    Have a great weekend.

  4. Beautiful little ones!

  5. Morning, We also have our grandsons petting and holding our baby chicks. One of the grandsons just has such a special touch with the animals. Have a great day!

  8. That photo makes me happy because Jordan is happy. I would want to hang out at your house, too.


  9. That is a smile of pure it! How great is it when a child finds something so exciting and shares that joy with us! Enjoy your day...and tell Jordan life is amazing...just keep watching!

  10. A precious photo! Baby chicks do lose their magic when the new feathers start appearing. But for now, all is marvelous for you, Jilda and Jordan!

  11. That picture has no need of words. : )
