We are awash in babies here at Huckleberry Hills! On the 20th we had turklets hatch, with our miniature human coming the following morning.
Little Scarlett is doing quite well, though she’s driving both of us nuts the last two days. Apparently she has decided that she wants to eat. Not a lot, just all the time. Lol
Anyway, a few nights ago, we had a half dozen bunnies show up in a nest box. This happened literally the evening after processing three of the larger rabbits. So, guess what I’m doing this weekend!
And two nights ago, I heard the distinctive sound of cherps from the bushes along the side yard. At which point I made the declaration that Chipmunk would be returning shortly. She’d been missing for a few weeks.
I love being right about stuff like that. I count at least ten.
So, as far as babies go, we’ve got three turklets (some of them didn’t make it), ten cherps, at least six bunnies, and a mini human. That’s a lot of babies for October! Glad the mamma birds are good at keeping them warm!
