Little hands warm hearts...

Recently my daughter was asked if her family could "nurse" back some little chicks to better health. Four little chicks delivered- scrappy, thin, in poor health. Shortly one died, but the other three had some very little hands to help nurse them back to health. AND within days the surviving three went from scrappy to perky almost chubby little balls of yellow fluff.

Grand girlies running down to the barn to see the baby chicks...


Three little chicks under a heat lamp...

The weakest of the three peeps had to be fed water with a syringe...

Two happy "peeps". Baby chicks now strong enough to go outside
for a short time...
Daffodils for Mommy...
One day the littlest of the peeps will be able to join the other chickens on the porch. That's Jo-Jo looking at them drinking from her water bowl!

For now the littlest of the peeps will have short visits outside and be taken care of with little hands and warm hearts...


I'm very proud that my grand girlies have taken the responsibility to nurse these peeps back to good health.

Awwww, so sweet! Your grandchildren are angels! They should be very proud of themselves for being able to nurse most of the chicks back to health. I hope it wasn't too hard on the children to lose the one.

I agree with Michelle, that is so sweet and what a great way for your grand girlies to learn about life and responsibilities. You're obviously a good example for your kids and your grandkids.

Oh my goodness...so very adorable (the girls and the chicks) and what wonderful nurses they are! I can see being a doctor or vet in their futures. :)
