Mornings Start Early

Mornings start early for the roosters. They start crowing at the crack of dawn.

Mornings start early for a mother hen and her chicks. They are often the first ones out of the chicken yard. Often it is the little ones that are most anxious to get outdoors.

It’s a different story with these chicks. Last night their mother was back up on the roost and the four chicks spent their first night without her. This morning they are glad to have her back, though now that she is roosting again, it won’t be long before they will be on their own for good.

And a pleasant surprise this morning was finding a young hen laying her first egg.
