Living in Wisconsin, you don’t want to have little chicks this late in the season. It gets is too cold too fast. So, lo and behold, here comes a mama hen and a bunch of chicks. She isn’t a good mama – she leaves some of them outside at night and I hear them “peeping” so I have to go outside and put them in the coop.
Today when I went out to feed the animals, I saw this cute little chick peeking his head out of one of my huge cucumbers I fed the chickens. Isn’t that cute!
Just pecking its way through the shell.
The other night, when I was gone to the Junk Bonanza, my husband heard one of the chicks “peeping.” So he went to find it – he chased it around the side of the coop – when the little chick saw those huge cucumbers, it stopped dead in its tracks and started pecking at it – he was able to catch pretty easy and put it in the coop.
Boy, chickens sure to have small brains….
Blessings from Wisconsin.
