Garden companions.....

Whenever I'm in the garden I always have company....... Above is one of the hens with three chicks. I've managed to control the hens so far this year so I don't have the population explosion I had last year!  These three chicks are about 5 or 6 weeks old.  No idea if they are hens or cockerels yet.....

Slightly older chicks from earlier in the year enjoying the sunshine.

Button, of course, also enjoys the sunshine in the garden..... here she thinks she is cleverly camouflaged...but I can see the white paws!

And this net was designed to keep pests OUT!


  1. Ohhh I love the wee chickens:)

  2. How neat! Thanks for sharing your pictues. We have five hen chicks in a brooder right now. These are the first for us. We look forward to future times with them in the garden! Mindy
