Chicks in the Coop

Tag-team hens and their chicks.

Tag-team hens and their chicks.

It’s spring again and we have baby chicks.  One of the young hens from last summer started setting back in March when it was really cold.  The other hens kept laying in the same nestbox, so there soon got to be too many for one little hen to keep covered.  I didn’t think it would work but then one of the older hens started setting with her to help keep them warm; then another young one joined them.  It was very crowded in there but warm.  We have 4 babies and they have a few more eggs that have not hatched.  I don’t know if anything will come of that, but they have made a valiant effort.  Hope they all turn out to be hens.

Glad to be back.  I have more to share.  So check in with me often.
