Day 23 of 365
It’s been a long day for this mama. I cannot write much tonight, as I have miles to go before I sleep, and today was a tough day for my kiddo. He’s fine, but it was one of those days when we just had to drop everything and help a pre-teen dealing with all of the emotions and struggles of growing up. I am a tired mama.
I will just share about another mama quickly. I did confirm that Ruby has seven babies! They are pretty active and were all over her for quite a bit of the afternoon. Sometimes, I was pretty sure she looked like a tired mama too. I mean, seven is a lot. But, of course, she’s smitten with them, as we are. Plus, they are too cute for words, and that always helps.
I am sharing this video I took today because it just makes me smile. I was trying to video Ruby and her babies, and some of the hens were in the coop behind me laying and singing, so very loudly, the song of their people. This made our rooster, Rooster, join in, so you can hear him too. Then, on top of that, in the distance, you can hear the crows cawing.
Underneath all of that, if you listen carefully, you can hear Ruby purr. I didn’t know chickens purred until I heard a mama hen purring for her babies. It’s so soothing. I hope you can catch a little soothing underneath the farm chaos otherwise.
And more tomorrow…
