    This hen hatched out about two weeks ago, and only one chick hatched in time, The mother left the nest, and now she is raising this single chick. She has plenty of time to devote to it. It is one of my green-skinned longtail project birds.

    Yay for mama hen! If she could talk I bet she would be saying "Don't you even think about touching my baby".
