Baby Chicks

Around Easter, we let one of the mama hens sit on two eggs. We drew on each of them so when we went down to get the eggs, we would know which two to leave in the coop.
She sat on the eggs for 21 days and when I went down one evening to push her off her nest (she would sit on all the other eggs too), I saw two little babies. They stayed in the box for a few days
and then they decided to go and explore. They jumped down and now I have to keep the coop closed so nothing can get in and hurt them.
The kids have named them Rosie and Landon and we love checking in on them each day.

We love having two sweet babies but we are all pretty nervous that we won't be able to keep them safe.
