Artist's Description

Follow on form Legal Adoption…Part 2.. Acceptance….
Pet adoption usually refers to the process of taking guardianship of and responsibility for a pet that a previous owner has abandoned or released to a shelter or rescue organization. In our case we adopted three baby chicks to help our broody hen.
Our hen, named “One” by Becky our God daughter who was only 3 years old at the time decided that she really wanted to have chicks. She went broody and no matter what I did, she was going to sit on the nest till something happened. I decided rather than put her through any further stress that we would buy a couple of day old chicks and allow her to rear them. It was such a special scene to witness. I removed the eggs which were infertile one by one and gently replaced them with baby chicks. She was a little confused for a few seconds, but once she realized they were babies you could feel her joy. Woman who are unable to have children adopt if they can, so I though why should we not apply the same for our hen. Mum and her three adopted babies are happy and doing well.
The chicks purchased from a nearby farm having hatched in an incubator. Southland New Zealand
