yesterday i had 31 passengers in my car. one was wearing a blue polka-dot sweater, and the other thirty were safely and snugly tucked in a cardboard box:
they are three-day-old baby guinea hens and just about the tiniest and sweetest things ever. i got them settled into their new home, and they seem to like it so far... they sleep in a mass of entangled necks and legs, keeping warm under the heat lamp. it was very cold last night (36 degrees!) and i was rather worried, but they were all doing fine this morning.
for now they are in a separate box from the ten baby chicks that came to the farm last week, a motley crew of assorted size and color:
i can't wait to watch them all grow up!
