My very best of friends The American Chicken Lady has been trying a little procreation with rather limited results. Of the 20 or so eggs that she put in the incubator only 2 hatched and of those the first chick died. The second chick however is alive and well and currently residing in a box next to the ACL’s bed with various cuddly toy chicks for comfort as well as the Emmerdale omnibus…really, I kid you not!
It is a Rhode Island Red and very cute
As her chickens are currently sitting on some eggs she doesn’t want to put the new chick in with them in case they abandon them so she’s taking the chick to work with her next week. In case it gets lonely. Honestly, sometimes I despair!
