First chick of the year!
Actually these pictures were taken last week, hence the bit of sunlight! Still grey skies today but at least the rain has stopped.
"Mum, Mum, I'm hungry!"
"Well come along dear, there's plenty of food on the floor here, some grain for me, and some oatmeal for you".
"Tuck in, like this, but be quick about it before the other hens arrive. They are greedy girls and will gobble it all up and let you go hungry!"
"Mum, I seem to be wearing my dinner? I think that human who comes to feed us doesn't have a very good aim!"
"OOoh Mum, there's lots of food here for us both!"
"That's right dear, she's not a bad human, she gives us lots of food and water. But beware, she steals our eggs!"
"Mum, what's an egg?"
"It's what you hatched out of ,dear."
"Mum, what came first...a chicken or an egg...?"
