Hen and chick

I tried many times to get a photo of both chicks at the same time but failed miserably in my attempts to get them to stay still long enough.

So here’s one of the hen tucking the chicks and the remaining eggs under her lovely warm feathers!

Look who hatched!

Remember our broody Silkie hen?

I went to top up her food and water yesterday and heard a very distinctive peeping sound…

All was well when I checked hen and chick this morning – better than well, in fact, because Chick #1 was accompanied in the peeping harmony by Chick #2!!

Photos of them both to follow soon!

Isn’t it weeny!!!!
