A New Chick Shows Up
A while back I noticed a young chick and Buff Orpington hen out in the sheep shed. It was the only little chick with the mama hen.
I hadn’t seen it since then, however, and was afraid it hadn’t made it. But then this morning the mama hen finally brought her chick out to get some of the corn I throw out each morning for the chickens.
I was happy to see the little one was still around, and from the looks of things, thriving quite well.
It actually reminds me a lot of Peeper’s chick. Hmmm, surely this hen didn’t steal Peeper’s chick?! That’s an interesting thought!
At any rate, it’s a cute little chick, but then, they always are cute!
