Our New Penguin

Lucy has been working with the chickens. She noticed a broody hen and chucked some warm eggs underneath her feathery fluff. Cut to twenty-one days later and we suddenly have penguins. This is Penguin. S/He is super sweet and very active. As I am crap at sexing chicks at this age, we will soon find out if Penguin is a he or she. There is another broody hen about. For the next day or two, Lucy will chuck warm eggs under her and then the hen will make them so.

It’s times like these I understand why Spring photos involve daffodils and baby chicks and Cadbury. If only we could chuck eggs under hens and get Cadbury.
