A Very Safe Place

The wonderful thing about letting mothers raise chicks is that you don’t need to keep the chicks under heat lamps. Whenever the chicks need to warm up, they can duck under their mother’s warm feathers for a rest. The other four chicks are in there somewhere.

For a chick, being under a mother’s feathers is a very safe place from which to peek and check out the world.
