|Chicks hatching in incubator|
If they were being hatched under a mama hen, I could take the chicks and the hen. There is no way I can care for chicks right now. Without a mother hen these babies require a lot of care. I offered several alternatives for finding homes but I cannot help worrying about the fate of these newborns.
We can eat eggs. We can eat grown chickens. But somehow it doesn't seem right to watch the wonder of nature as the chicks arrive into the world and then just neglect them.
Who else thinks there is are some major lessons to learn here and believe the home-schooling teacher may have missed the mark?
|Remember Elenore Hen with her chicks Chicklet, Mr. Gibson and Rebecca? Chicklet is our main rooster now and you all know about Mr, Gibson turning out to be a nurturing hen like mama Elenore. Rebecca, sadly, was coyote food.|
