Mother Hen & Her Nine Chicks

Date: 23rd Sept. 2009
I was cleaning up and checking on my garden when I heard a baby chick sound. I was tempted to push the hen and see if they had hatched but dare not put my hand and decided to put a broom handle and see - true enough the mother hen got furious and started pecking over the stick.

On the next day, all the nine chicks got hatched. I noticed that there is a huge trouble this mother hen faced. Just below there is this big monsoon drain infront of her and another drain kerb at the side, the mother hen came inside my house and started calling her chicks to come to the other side by going thru the ferns and fencing.

One and two chicks managed but the rest was just lost, I took the liberty to safe all of them sending one by one to the mother hen. (Needed to be quick too as the hen was very defensive)
Finally all of the chicks reached safely and I had started feeding the new family with break crumbs.

Later, the owner of the hen took all the chicks into his house and care for them (or had chicken soup!!! - hope not, poor little ones)


  1. Wow! That is a busy mother hen! Thanks for sharing these adorable pictures! You are lucky!
