The evening of Sunday, May 26th there was barely audible peeping coming from her nest. I did not lift her up to see, but said good night and went to bed so excited for what morning would bring.
It is difficult to reconcile this action. We are asking the chickens to be in relationship with us, to leave their mama and travel to the 'city'. They cannot say no, yet they participate in this relationship with vigor, bringing us much joy. I vow to take excellent care of the chicks, to provide them with the highest quality of life possible.
thank you mama hen
