Becoming a Mother Again


This is Buttercup sitting on her eggs today. Last year in April she was doing the same thing. She’s aged a bit in a year. The pictures below are from last April when she was sitting on eggs and teaching her new chicks how to forage.

Does she have any memories of raising chicks last year? What does she think as she sits on her eggs, day after day? Having raised chicks last year, does she plan on raising them differently this year? We think so little of animals like chickens. They are far more complex than we can fathom.
