Proud new mum Brenda

Yesterday afternoon Broody Brenda appeared with her new family! She has seven chicks in all – five whitish in colour, two black. One of the white and one black must have been late hatchers as they were struggling to keep up and kept sitting down trying to catch forty winks!

It was certainly a lovely day for them with warm sunshine which meant that mum didn’t have to worry too much about keeping them covered. After their busy afternoon, they had a fairly early night altough one of the black ones managed to miss the door of the coop altogether! Kevin came to the rescue though and soon everyone was safely under Brenda’s wings and no doubt fast asleep within seconds!
