Feathered Friday

This mama hen has 13 babies.  She hatched out all but one of the eggs she was sitting on.  Fortunately it was easy to round her and her babies up and move them into a brooder so they would be safe.

As soon as I opened the door she started herding everyone away from me and to the back toward her.

Even though she is very protective, it is not safe for her to have so many tiny babies out in the yard.
