Do as I’m doing, follow, follow me
I love having baby chicks!
This is the first time we’ve had a hen hatch a batch for us, and I’ve got to say, it’s the best.
The little chicks follow mama hen where ever she goes, and do what ever she does.
She pecks, they peck.
She scratches the dirt, they scratch the dirt.
They walk around the yard pecking and scratching all day.
Today I was watching them and mama dealt an immobilizing peck to a grasshopper and then stepped back so her babies could enjoy the prize.
They enjoyed it all right.
