Before the rooster was killed, one of my "girls" was setting on a nest of eggs. So I was hoping and praying she would hatch out some new babies for me.
A friend of mine heard about the situation and sent me a message offering to "gift" me some of her fertile eggs. And to top it off she even delivered them!
I slipped them under the hen that night with her other eggs and marked my calendar. And waited.
This morning was the 21st day. After finishing my chores I made my way to the far corner of the barn to see what I might find.
I carefully lifted momma hen up and was pleasantly surprised to see all five of her remaining eggs had hatched!
And I have these five new babies because of a generous, thoughtful gift from a friend. You never know what a "seemingly" small gift can mean to a person. It can become a great treasure. Thank you friend!
