The Magic Number is Eight

PeachAnd8-A

The magic number is eight. Peach brought her chicks out into the chicken yard today. She has eight, fluffy, healthy, perky, excited chicks. The chicks started hatching on the 27th. Of the ten eggs she was sitting on, nine hatched. One of the eggs was infertile and did not develop. One chick did not make it.

Even though it is a cool time of the year, she will keep them nice and warm.

She senses danger and fluffs up like a turkey. Hens can make themselves appear twice as large by spreading their feathers.
