"Chick" This Out!



I'm so excited! My Bantam hens have been laying on their eggs for the last month and they hatched this week. We have 6 sweet little chicks. My hens were just chicks when I got them, but this is my first experience seeing how chickens mother. They're so nurturing and protective. In fact, when I first realized the chicks had hatched I thought there were only 2 because the other four were tucked underneath the hens. How cool is that!! The mamas just draw them close and close their wings around them. But the best part was last night when I was working on a bible study and I came across a verse in Psalms that just made me stop and say "Whoa!". Psalm 91:4 reads "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." Is God awesome or what!! He reminded me that just like those mother hens He has me under His wings. He is protecting me always. All I can say is Wow!!

I really love baby chicks, I would love to have chickens of my own for eggs and companionship. I could never eat pets. Unfortunately its against zoning laws :(

I love how you stumbled across a verse with that parallel to your real life. That's God at work!
