A mother hen is on the go all day long. Lucky has her wings full. Her chicks will be a month old on Monday. There’s no time to look at colorful fall leaves and meditate. The only time she rests is when her chicks want a nap, and by the time they get to be a month old, they don’t want to nap as much as they did when they were little babies.
Month old chicks like to venture out on their own, and keeping up with her brood is a daunting task. Some hens are done raising chicks by the time they are a month old. Others stay on duty for a full two months or more. Lucky has been an exceptional mother. It will be interesting how long she will raise her chicks.
