Feathered Friday

We have three hens with chicks right now.  I expect we will have more in the near future as a couple of hens come rushing in at feeding time.  That is generally a good sign that they have been sitting all day and not out eating bugs and such.

All of the hens and their chicks are currently in brooder boxes.  This is best when they are young.  Even though our cats will not bother the babies, I do not trust any neighborhood cats or other critters that visit us.  Pretty soon they will all be ready to move into the nursery pen.
