๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰SURPRISE!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

WE HAVE BABY CHICKENS!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Hello, Blendiez!

How are you today?

As you can probably see, I'm stoked!! Our baby chickens are hatching!! Not only are they absolutely adorable, but these are our first generation born and raised here babies. Not from a hatchery, not from another chicken farmer, but ours. From our hens and rooster (thank you Jean Claude and Chasseur and Cosette). I'm so excited! We're gonna have Marans babies running around everywhere! We have 5 out of the shell as of right now, and more pipped and hopefully on the way!

(And if you remember, we also were trying to get Dark Cornish babies, but Mr. Meatball was more interested in food than hens. We only have two Cornish eggs that were fertile, and we'll see if they make it. They haven't pipped yet.)

So: SURPRISE, Blendiez! This was what I wanting to share so badly, but I didn't want to jinx it; as hatching eggs can be a difficult business.

Ok, so I better calm down a bit; and talk about some other things in this check-in, like maybe some workouts? What's happening with your workouts today, Blendfriendz?

Why, I'm gonna be chasing baby chickens around, of course! And perhaps doing a lower body routine. I was suppose to do upper body, but I did some EC kickboxing yesterday, and I'm feelin it. So, lower body it is!

And what's on the menu today, Blenderz? Anything good?

Not sure just yet! I'm too excited about baby birds to worry about food at the moment!

And then finally, of course, our 'interesting critter pic' is of the hatched baby. The first one. This is a particularly vigorous little chick--it took no time bustin out of that egg!

Okie dokie, Blendiez, that's it for me for now!

Thank you all so much for checking in, and I hope you have a great day!

Take care!
