And this is not the first time BOY has been a chick foster mom.....here are some other pictures Michele took in 2005.
And the really amazing thing is that it's a lifelong friendship. Here's BOY with Zha-Zha (one of the 2005 chicks all grown up into a pretty little hen).
I would dearly love to get some chickens for our place here. Michele's advice is to get 4-6 hens but no roosters (because they will drive the neighbors crazy). I'm not too worried about my neighbors, but a rooster might drive my dog Sophie crazy. Her chickens are free range and she says they eat tons of bugs in her yard. Now I just have to convince Mr. Johnson about how nice it would be to have some chickens of our own!
Thanks Michele for sharing allowing me share your story and pictures in my blog.
