A Surprise Hatchling, An Answered Prayer, and Attempting to Hatch More Turkey Eggs! Week 26 2017

I was sitting there giving Neville his vitamins… or at least attempting to… when Miley came running in saying there was a little chick outside! She was so excited! We put mamma hen and chick in our chicken tractor so we can watch her raise it.

Our rooster, Neville, hasn’t been doing very good for a while now. Lately he’s gotten worse and one night we were sure he wouldn’t make it to the next morning. Surprisingly he did, thanks to a prayer, and he’s been slowly getting a little better. He’s still got a long ways to go but we’re happy he’s improving.

We have a broody hen so I decided to put some turkey eggs under her to see if she will hatch them. The turkey hen is building a clutch and I’m hoping she will start sitting soon. Maybe the 3rd time is a charm? Unfortunately Neville isn’t doing very well anymore… so sad! My mom has a neat container garden so I decided to give you a little tour of her set up.
