Harriet our first Chicken to have Chicks, has been doing great with her new chicks. All 4 of them seem to be doing really well and are growing every day.
a few days ago we thought we would trial her in the Chick pen with her chicks.
Mr T built me an awesome A Frame Pen for my new Frizzle Chicks a few weeks ago and now that they are almost ready for the big hen pen, I thought Harriet would enjoy the A-Frame to raise her Chicks in peace.
So we let the Frizzle Hens free range with the big Hens, while we gave Harriet and her chicks a run in the A-Frame.
Everyone had fun. Harriet loved the pen and apart from accidentally kicking once of her chicks as she scratch in the Dirt, even the chicks seem to have fun.
It’s getting cooler here so I really wanted to see how she would go with the new chicks in the pen as we prepare them for the cooler nights coming up.
Harriet is an attentive Mumma and is very protective, so I think she will do great with them when I transfer her full time into the A-Frame pen full time.
