Hen with Hatchlings


Hen with Hatchlings
Sixteen, count 'em, sixteen. Note the one in the foreground with the blood and missing feathers. The groundskeepers occasionally find single eggs and they put them in the nest of a nesting hen. For some reason, she will set the egg and not bother the hatchling for a couple of days, then she attacks with a vengeance. Another hen adopted this hatchling. It took about 8 hours for these to hatch. They were about 4 or 5 hours along when I arrived that morning.
