Abby, coming back in the house from checking for eggs, with a big grin on her face:

Momma? Do you like green eggs and ham?

New Mama Hen

A couple weeks ago, when we went to put the metal on the roof of our add-on, we found one of our banty hens sitting on a nest.

She had seven eggs under her – yay! We left her there, and on May 3, the eggs hatched.

On May 6, we moved our little hen and her chicks back to the chicken coop, and all were doing well -until two days ago.

This past Monday, my children came running in the house with a baby chick -the poor little thing couldn’t hardly move! Thinking it had strayed too far from momma hen and just got cold, we put the chick in a box with a light.

After a while it perked up.

That night I put the little chick back under it’s momma, hoping she would take it back.

It was not to be. When my children went to feed yesterday, they saw momma hen peckin’ and steppin’ on the little chick –she had rejected it. :(

Back in the box for the poor little chick.

After it perked up again, the little chick got to cheepin’ really loud –probably because he was all alone.

The Chicken Whisperer

The constant cheeping can be rather annoying and Daniel couldn’t stand it! He sat down beside the box and started cluckin’ to that little chick – and, wouldn’t ya know, that chick quieted right down!

Daniel would quit cluckin’ and the chick would start up again.

It wasn’t long ‘til Daniel got tired of cluckin’!

The chick cheeped for a little while and when there was no answering cluck, he proceeded to hop up on the edge of the box and over to Daniel’s lap!

A Pet Chicken

Daniel couldn’t play with Legos with a chicken in his lap -so little chick went in his pocket.

It’s not picky, either –Abby will do as well as Daniel.

I was worried about the chick cheeping all night long, so, after everyone went to bed, I held the little chick until it went to sleep and then I tucked it under the feather duster we have mounted in the corner of the box.

It worked! Not a peep ‘til this morning!

So now we have a “pet” chicken…

What am I gonna do with a pet chicken?!

I guess we could ride around with it in the car, or take it shopping -like everyone else does with their itty bitty dogs. Heehee. :)
