A Hatching Job

Boyfriend has called with Breaking News:

  • Broken egg chips have been discovered beneath the dove nest
  • Ms. Dove is especially fluffed out, as if to cover the newborns from the cold air
  • Ms. Dove is restless, moving about constantly, which I think you would do too, if you had living babies rustling around underneath you
  • Mr. Dove is especially attentive, perching nearby, and not on the telephone wire, having a smoke with the rest of the guys

Boyfriend is convinced that there has been a successful hatching.  I will be over there this weekend and hope to have more news and photographs.
