Meet Chickie Mama (Abigail) as she shows you what it’s like to care for her delightful brood of chickens. Her helper is Chickie Aunt (Bethany).
We’ll start with checking on the new additions, who are camping out in the shed until they’re old enough to join the rest. They probably need a water refill, so we’ll add some.
Now onto the layers.
Pardon us, ma’am.
The layers are thirsty too.
We’ll go ahead and open the cage for the day. Cluck, cluck–yeah!
Time to check for eggs. Here’s one, and it’s still warm!
So sorry. Does my camera bother you?
Okay, next we’ll check back around lunch.
We need to fill up the little flock’s food.
Checking for more eggs. Yeah!
Late afternoon: back to check on “the girls” again. More eggs. That’s great.
Chickie Mama enjoys her chickens.
Yes, we’ll give you some tasty treats.
One of the tardy girls has to be rounded up.
Night, night. A good job, well done. All in the day of a Chickie Mama.
