Mamas At Work

Rosewitha, Silka, and Flicka are all taking good care of the ten new chicks.  Chick twelve was born but did not make it, another fully formed, but was probably not warmed and died of exhaustion.  Chick Thirteen never hatched, and the egg went out today.  All seem to be vigorous, even the two that I had my doubts about.  The mamas cluck to them constantly, and the chicks ebb and flow around their skirts as they search the bedding of the little henhouse.
