The larger chicken in the lower right hand corner is one of the baby chicks from this last Christmas. She surprised us all with a nest with some babies. Three are hers and four belong to two other hens that she claimed for a total of seven. The Keeper kept them in the tack room until they had feathers. They all have feathers now and the Mama has done a great job teaching them how to be chickens. They are months ahead of the last bunch.
She already has six of the seven roosting in the rafters. They are months ahead of the previous ones that the Keeper had to teach to perch.
But there is always one in every crowd. There is one that just hasn't gotten the message yet to go up. He will perch on the fence, but just can't seem to get up to the rafters yet. We will keep you posted, until then, Happy Trails To You!
