I Love Grandma's Feather Bed!!! - Chick - NZ by 


Nature can be very cruel… other jealous hens may attack and peck baby chicks to death… however I have also seen a very tender side to chickens too. I have observed a mother hen with two chicks for the past two weeks… she has two nannies… I have never seen this before and was fascinated. The chicks are comfortable with all three hens and will snuggle under the nearest hen to take a nap… all three hens fuss over the chicks, it is wonderful to see.. I guess they have extra protection as six eyes are better than two. This little one is taking a nap with one of the other chickens… I call her grandma… Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Southland New Zealand Feb. 2012

Chickens will take up different roles in the flock, due to their differing personalities. If a chicken is good at a certain call, it might become the sentry and watch out for danger or predators. Other chickens will assume the role of calling the hens into the coop to sleep for the night. Other chickens will be extremely good at finding food and they will alert the others about it, making excellent scouts. The pecking order is extremely advanced, and within the flock they will designate members to certain tasks depending on their capabilities. Depending on their breed, they will form “cliques” of two or three, and will hangout together. They are very social creatures.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
