The Peachicklet

24 Aug

What’s the hen doing just squatting like that?  She’s keeping her chick warm.  We’ve been cool, so her baby likes to snuggle under her to stay warm.


Sadly, this is the only one left.  I keep blocking holes in the pen, but I still haven’t succeeded at keeping this one in the safety of the pen.

Luckily, as the baby gets bigger, I’m more likely to be successful at keeping her safe, but we’re not at that point quite yet.


You’ll notice the chick is growing a cute little topknot!
