A few days ago, I watched a hen walking slowly across my yard. She was acting a little different.  She would walk a bit, then sit down for a while, then get up, move around some and would sit down again.  I finally figured out why, she had 2-3 chicks with her.  They were barely taller than the grass.  First chicks I've seen this year.

Yari, if you find the nest, don't forget to take some pics.

i'll be up again in a week. if I get a chance, I will see what I can find. it looks like it's finally drying out up there so there will be many hours of tractor time that will take precedent

It was a good hatch this year, saw two hens with at least 16-18 poults, another with 7 and several others with 8-12. They wouldn't stand still long enough to count. It's also been a good year for rattlers, I saw 5 different ones this past weekend and got pictures of 3 of them. The hot dry weather has brought them out all over.

Spotted a hen with a chick, a little bigger than a Cornish hen, walking across my backyard a few days ago.  Not seeing much of anything lately.  Even the woodchucks have not made any more appearances.
