Announcing the Birth of Six Babies

There was great excitement today when I saw 6 baby chickens. Two of the tiny day old creatures had wandered over a metre away from their mother out through a forest of garden plants, under the Kiss-me-Quick, around the Hebe and past the pelargonium cuttings.

Young Mother Hen has this garden for her canopy.
The Hollyhock leaves act as her roof keeping her dry from all the Spring rains.

The teenage Mum clucked, and next the chicks had disappeared. I was frantic with worry wondering how they could find their way through the forest of garden plants again, back to their mother's side. But amazingly, they did.

Four of our six baby chickens, all purebreds, different breeds

And they arrived safe and well.
