It's a Peacock . . . and a Duck!

by Pa Rock
Poultry Provacateur

Pa Rock is pleased  to announce the birth of Cosmo the Peacock who arrived in the incubator on top of Pa's Rock's kitchen table at approximately 7:00 a.m. this morning.  Cosmo is the very first farm fowl to be conceived and born at Rock's Roost since Pa Rock settled here way back in March of 2014.

Cosmo was joined in the incubator four hours later by Sparkle the Duck as he (or she) kicked its way out of its own egg shell.  Sparkle is a little black duckling.  Sparkle and Cosmo have already become fast friends!

This is day twenty-seven of what should have been a twenty-eight day gestation period, so both new farm babies are early arrivals.  The incubator contains six more peacock eggs and eleven additional duck eggs.

Is there anything more magical than springtime on a farm?
