Hello all I wanted a space to document our new chick’s journey We’ve recently adopted Cookie. She’s currently 12 days old. We aren’t sure of her breed. We are pretty sure of her sex (we hope). It’s a weird story on how we adopted Cookie... We live in a tiny village and our neighbours have a very friendly 18 month old Hen called Red. Red has been hanging out with us for weeks and even sleeping on our sofa in the evenings! My children (and myself) have grown so close to her. Disaster struck last week when Red was attacked. We thought we had lost her so my husband agreed that we could have a little chick. Well, it turns out that Red is okay. Even better our neighbours have said we can adopt her.. So now we have a lovely Hen and a baby chick to nurture. We are so excited. Here are some pictures of our new baby..
