Well, I got a very hard lesson in "child proofing" my nursery pen. I thought I had it all sealed up, but I guess I needed to think more like a chick since one precocious little Austra White found his way into the "frat house" next door. I came home from a medical appointment to find two of my extra NN cockerels protecting the little guy from my EE and Dorking-mix roosters...but the chick was NOT unscathed. They damaged his beak, comb, and ear and barely missed his eye. He's now in isolation in the house after receiving from basic medical care from this very remorseful (human) chicken mama. Luckily, chickens, like dogs, are amazingly resilient. He's now eating, drinking and happily roosting on my finger every chance I give him...but he looks awful.
