Are you my Mother?
I drove to Wagner's Hatchery in Coldstream this morning and purchased a dozen day old female chicks.
We managed to keep them warm during the day and gave them food and water.
But we are sad because one little black one died. Such a little scrap of nothing.
|My mum hates this photo because she says her hands look old. I wonder|
what 94 year old hands should look like? I think it is a wonderful juxtaposition
of old and new.
|Keeping warm and waiting for transfer to the mother ship.|
When it was good and dark we snuck into the chicken shed and, one by one, popped the remaining chicks under a sleepy Henny.
It was funny because the chickens were all cheeping but, as each one was put under the hen, it stopped immediately.
I also removed those stinky eggs Henny has been sitting on.
Now lets just all hope that Henny, knows what to do when she wakes up in the morning!
