I Love My Feather Bed!! - Sussex Chick - NZ by 

Snuggling up in a warm bed with a soft feather duvet…it is a wonderful feeling especially on a cold winters night… This little chick looks so content swaddled in it’s mothers warm feathers… Secure knowing that she will protect it and keep it warm. I have spent loads of time observing Tilly with her brood, she is gentle, tolerant, patient, affectionate and protective… she spends most of the day finding food for them and will give up the nice juicy worms for her young… Nature and her creatures are so beautiful… we can all take a page out of their book…Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 A little Vignette applied in Picasa to this image…Southland New Zealand September 2012

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.

    Well, that’s the cutest shot! I had a beautiful Sussex hen that I was going to show at the Antelope Valley Fair in CA one year. Just days before, my son was out in the yard with his friend and his bb gun. They both knew the rules. It was hot – we lived in the high desert. My son and friend wanted to see how close he could come to the hen, who was coming around the corner of the house. Son fired, hit her in the thigh. It was too quiet. I went out to see two pale faces. “Mom”, don’t be mad…and David showed me the hen. The bb we found was a superficial wound, had gone in and out, not deep, and she must have died of shock or a heart attack. I made them sit in that hot sun, boil water in a pot, gut her, pluck her, and as the afternoon drew on, friend left, and my son was sick to his stomach from the decomposing entrails. He had to cook her and eat her. I would probably be hauled in on child abuse charges. He never did that again, except once when he got his first deer.

    I loved that speckled Sussex. She was sweet and beautiful.

  • Thank you May… that would have been a lesson for them both…
