Please welcome the twins.

The were born last night in a lightning and rainstorm that lasted most of the night. Mom and Dad are taking very good care of them as they should. We could all learn some lessons from this.



They are about two feet away from my bedroom. Window and they actually woke me up with their squeaking.

  1. Welcome to life Twins. From the looks of it you're in great hands. You've also got a pretty dang good neighbor.

  3. You need to setup a game trail camera or a web camera with the motion sensor driver to take pics of them as they grow. Upload the pics or video to youtube Bet you get thousands of views on it.

    1. I've been keeping my eye out for a couple of game cams. We have a ten point buck out here that likes my garden. My neighbor has an awesome picture of him.

      "Chickenmom" and it should bring you to my newby blog called: Chicken Feathers.
      It's really lame. I cannot write. I don't even know how the blog thingy works. I am asking Irish for help. I need it. Badly. (Ah, well, at least the jokes will be funny)!

  4. About ten years ago, I was trimming the hedges and uncovered a nest of newborn cardinals. The sun was baring down on them and I cried hysterically, watching the mother as she stared at her dying babies. I'm so glad these won't meet the same fate. I love cardinals - especially being from the Kentuckiana area.

  7. I picked up a good IR Game Cam at walmart. It was being discontinued so instead of 89.99 it was an even 50.00. Added in an 8GB SD card and some C cell batteries total cost right around 75.00 It takes really good pics at night, but my daughter and I can just barely see the red of the IR LED's
