Almost three weeks ago now, I welcomed these 3 little ones to the Rural Side! 3 New Zealand/ Californian mix rabbits. This is the first successful litter the rabbits have had, so I have been very happy.
Around the same time we had 5 new chicks hatch under two broody hens, 3 of which have survived. These are d’uccle and wyandotte mixes.
And a couple months ago a robin made a nest in a grape vine wreath by the door to the house. She laid three eggs, two of which hatched. One afternoon I came home to find a baby bird sitting on the edge of the nest. Before I got back with the camera it had flown off. I got a picture of its sibling still in the nest. A little while later, it too had flown the nest.
