Broody chicken

  

 Chicks   were successfully accepted by broody hen last night and she is loving them.  I am so exMeet Nemo, one wing is just a stump, but hopefully it will have a good life stil. 

We had to rescue the chick as she had become buried under the sawdust material. So she/he is in the incubator now warming up and drying off.
