    The mamma hens took ther little'uns out today for the first time today! Its amazing how the mamma's know which chicks belong to them and vise versa with the chicks. They are so funny to watch, chasing after fly's and bugs, chasing eachother, jumping on mum, trying to groom themselves (one i watched tryed itching its chest but ended up rolling backwards and getting stuck on his back!). There is 10 chicks in total.

    Mamma hen 1 (Lucy)- 3 chicks.
