Busy Mothers

Summer is a busy season for mother hens. Every week, there are new hens sitting on eggs. Those with chicks are taking their chicks out into the brush to find good hunting grounds. Each week they take them further and further.

The chicks below are a five weeks old. They are already sleeping on the roost at night next to their mother. A few more weeks and they will probably be on their own. Until then, they spend twenty-four hours a day by her side, learning new things every day.
