Surprise Chicks

We went out to do our normal routine and found this hen. We thought a predator of some sort had got her. We looked and she was just outside the chicken pen when we turned them all out that morning and seen a baby chick. We ran around the pen to investigate and started counting. OMG! She has 8 babies! Everyone here on the farm was so excited. It really was a gift from god. We just had some chickens attacked by predators and then we got Surprise Chicks!


So we rounded her and the chicks up and got some food to the new momma. She was starving!


I guess free ranging chickens can lead to surprises.
