Too Cute For Words


Well, maybe a few words. About a month ago one of my remaining hens went broody. But since she hadn't been near a rooster for awhile she didn't have any fertile eggs to hatch. A neighbour gave me a few Buff Orphington eggs, and Zelda was happily entranced by sitting on them.
Then there was that chaotic episode and the Zeldas were relocated to my friend Jay's place. Zelda lost her broodiness, but Jay's little banty DuckMom successfully took over the job. The chicks are only two weeks old now, but already getting too big for the wee banty.
Jay Rainey, who is a brilliant photographer, took these pictures. All copyright goes to her.
