Chicks go for a walk with Mama Bev

They are a about a week old. You can’t keep them confined, and Bev takes them all over the yard. The falther, Archie (Copper Marin, is watching.

Bev was broody and a few weeks ago we gave her some eggs. The eggs were from Veronica (Copper Marin), Gigi (Creve Couer), Daisy (buff orpington), and Thelma (easter egger). Not sure, but it loos like we lucked out with three hens and only one rooster, but I can’t really tell.

They all look like their Copper Marin dad, but only the true marin chick has feathered feet. The buff oprington cross is brown but much darker than a true Buff Orpington chicken.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
