Happy Family

The hen finally adopted four chicks. We discovered one dead chick in the doghouse (possibly smothered by the dog's blanket) and the other five were probably eaten by something. Here's the happy family:

The new mother has the run of the barn. As you can see in this picture, we spared no expense in decorating the nursery. Finest barbed wire bales we could find.

Wow I have certainly missed a lot of chicken drama by not checking in here in a little while! :)

Hope you will not lose any more of your little ones. Our broody hen only hatched out one, and it got eaten by an unknown something... darn it.
