They Hatched! Mama Hen & her Chicks

They Hatched!  Mama Hen & her Chicks

“He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge” –Psalm 92:4

In my last post I shared about searching for eggs in the hay, discovering a hen with a nest, and deciding to let her try and hatch her eggs. The next day, I peeked under her feathers and found the black eyes of a fluffy, yellow chick peering back at me!
