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!

    The close up of the Mother shows how beautiful she is! Amazing. And the little one is adorable; with its topknot! Hopefully she or he stays in.

      I’m trying to keep the little one in. I just covered some more holes.

    Sorry that there is only 1 left, but hopefully this one will make it! Love the topknot! I got my wonderful calendar and soaps today! Thank you so much! 🙂

      That didn’t even take too long to get there. Well, sort of. LOL I do hope this one makes it. I still have another hen sitting on two eggs, but it’s getting awfully late for her to hatch them.

    So cute!!!! I’ve never seen peahens before except in books, so they’re so cute!! I hope that the little chick survives!

      They aren’t as flashy as the guys, but they are still lovely birds.

    I hope this this little one makes it. Sure is cute!

      I hope so too. It’s a dangerous world for a little bird.

    I’m sorry you only have one left. I really hope this little cutie makes it! That little topknot is cute….I didn’t realize the topknot would show up so early.

      I really want it to survive too, but I don’t know what I’ll do if it’s a male. The world really is a dangerous place for a little bird.

    I hope this one survives.

      Thanks, I really do too. I keep trying to make it secure in the pen, but they are so tiny!

    What a beautiful bird. I hope this one gets bigger fast!

      S/he is growing quickly, and I keep trying to plug more holes. I really do hope one baby makes it this year.

    hope it makes it!
