|Cherry with baby snuggled under her head. |
Egg shell in lower left. Baby is already dry with
white fluff. Probably hatched early this morning.
|Wider view of Cherry in her box with egg shell and baby.|
Old food stains on box walls. She is meticulous about not
pooping in her nest box, and keeps it very clean.
|Close-up of Cherry with her first hatchling of the year. |
She's not hand tamed, but used to being peeked in at.
|This is our hand fed Fuchsia whose eggs should begin hatching |
within the next couple of days. She isn't as meticulous as
Cherry or Rosie about keeping her nest box clean.
It will need a bit of cleaning after all eggs hatch.
|My favorite hen, Rosie. Hand fed and sweet as can be, |
she keeps a meticulously clean nest box even though she
seldom leaves it. She's a dedicated and loving mother and pet bird.
