Far too many more pics of Marble and her babies

Cue a million more photos of the chicks and Marble. This kind of cuteness just has to be shared. It's funny - the chicks are only one day old and already you can see their personalities. Rosie is feisty and curious and playful - she bit Marble's lower wattle really hard (left a mark, but Marble didn't seem to mind) in her play, and attacked Isabella's toes - I know they look like little worms, but they're not for eating, Rosie! Izzy is much shyer and more reserved and doesn't come out as much as Rosie, who is out looking for attention when she hears our voices. Marble keeps trying to push her back under her wings but Rosie isn't having any of it! So adorable.

Here is the current accommodation setup: Doris, Tulip and Kiki in the new coop on the left, and Marble and the babies in the "maternity ward" old coop on the right, with attached trampoline run so they are protected.
