She is growing so fast (please let her be a she). A few pics:
We are hoping for the same bouffant hair-do on the baby. Bio-mom is not allowed near the chick. In fact she is chased away more viciously than any of the other coop-mates. She is not the brightest of the bunch. I am not sure that she has noticed the baby chick! In the background is dad – Napoleon Dynamite. He has great colours. Hopefully she will develop spots too!
The chick is getting brave & wanders all over the hen run. The 3 brahmas triangulate around her & ward off the other interested hens & Napoleon.
Her favourite thing over the last couple of days has been to ride the Brahmas. It is ridiculously cute. She stays on the back of the Brahma for about 5 minutes at a time. Occasionally she has to cling to the feathers when the Brahma makes a sudden turn. I am trying to shoot a video, but when I open the door the moms shake the chick to the ground & hide her. It is easier to take pictures through the wire (:
