Take a look at the picture below…what strikes you as odd?
Take a look at how many feet this chook has …………
Few too many eh? …..and when we got her to move this is the explanation…18 babies!!!!
Now 2 weeks on amazingly she still has 16 babies in tow
….and she’s still fitting them all underneath her to keep them snuggled up at night!! Just as well she had them when she did because it’s starting to get chilly now (we’re in Autumn) and they will be fully feathered before it gets too cold.
We keep trying to cut down on chooks but the chooks seem to have other ideas
