3 fine chicks!

Mother hen has been very busy showing the chicks the ropes, how to look for food and scratch around the earth for a good spot for a dust bath. it has been very enjoyable viewing.

She really is a good mother and very protective of them.
Out of 13 eggs we only got 3 chicks which was a poor return but in saying that, maybe for the first batch it is enough to break us in gently.

They really are so cute and after about 4 or 5 weeks apparently we will be able to determine the sex off them.
Maybe a male about the place will keep the others in line as some of the hens we have are so brazen and pick on mother hen here!!
