The Fuzzy Newcomers
Sage holds his new chick Lantern.
Much to Sage’s delight, this year is a Chick Year. (We raise a new batch of chicks every two years in order to ensure a steady supply of eggs.)
Sage and Paul watch the chicks in their box, where they’ll live under a brooder lamp until they’re older and fully feathered.
The new arrivals: Snuggly, Lantern, and Snappifer (so named because Sage accused her of pecking him when she first arrived)
The fresh eggs will be a nice perk when these birds come of age, but for now, they’re earning their keep in cuteness.
