"This is the very first baby to be born in our coop. We think she's a girl so we named her "Sunny" and her mom is called "Mother". Those were Judy's idea. You'll hear Judy in the video.
In the summer that mother was brooding and brooding and wouldn't get out of the nesting box. So after several weeks one chick hatched. A few days later that chick fell onto the floor of the coop!! That was too bad. But the mother had another egg left in the nest and she didn't want to leave it alone...so she decided she better try to keep the baby safe and warm that was on the floor. So we, well, not me, but I watched while Judy built a really nice play house for the mom and baby to be in while the baby chick grew up enough to be safe around other juvenile chicks. And now you can see them both trying out the roosting area. It's soooooo cute!
