I say 'chick update No.3' as I put two updates on the bottom of my last post - I didn't want to seem TOO obsessed!
Today's post will comprise of this first bit - then further down at the bottom there will be updated news as it happens (or pretty much anyway!).
Not a lot to report today so far. We still have four chicks, and they are looking cuter than ever!
I had to make sure the remaining eggs were nicely under Queenie, as she seems to occasionally forget they are there - but then again, it's all new to her and she has a lot to cope with right now!
I very carefully lifted Queenie off the remaining eggs, her chicks were peeping out to see what was going on, to put her in front of her food and water. She was very unsteady on her feet, and so would mine be if I'd had been sitting for the amount of time she has - but she managed to eat some, drink some, and leave behind the biggest, stinkiest deposit I have ever seen from a chicken!
...still, you probably didn't want to know that last bit!
Here's what the chicks look like this morning...
And one of the chicks eating her tasty chick crumbs!
