Had to Share
Just had to share. Here's Miss Connie with her 2 chicks. They are now a month old, and Mom was more than ready to let them care for themselves. As soon as the Moose opened the door, she flew out. The chicks followed, and Momma spent some time defending them, but gave up and headed out doors for the first time in a couple of months. Poor little things were terrified and picked on. The hens were actually pretty good around them, but the "teenage" roosters were pretty mean. So being the big softie I am, I picked them up and they are now housed in a large dog carrier with food and water, until they get large enough to defend themselves.
