Chick Pics & Writing News (At Last) #Authors4ALSA

I'm so sorry, but it's just going to be another quick update. After a week 'away' enjoying my wedding anniversary, everything else has fallen behind...and an exciting thing has happened.

Chick Update
Yes! Last Wednesday-a whole day ahead of schedule-the first of the six eggs under mama Firefly pipped and hatched in the space of a few hours. That little baby couldn't wait to get out.
A second followed that same evening, and by the time I checked them again next morning, Firefly had three little fluffballs under her wings.Two more hatched in the afternoon. Sadly the sixth egg was a dud - I'm afraid the attempted theft by one of my other chooks that left it lying out in the cold for an unknown time the week before may have been the cause. Who knows?! Five out of six is still pretty good going, and even more so for posted hatching eggs. 

And at five days old, they've already grown out their wings.

Look at those wing feathers!

Now, if you haven't died from cuteness overload...

Writing Update
Reunion has gone back to my editor, so I'm waiting for it to return.

And finally, don't forget...
