10. A New Member

Yesterday, a new member joined our family by the name of Mother Hen. She was slightly injured so was brought back to heal, while hopefully looking after the young ones. However, as this is her first time being a Mother, I think she is lost to what she's suppose to do. All she does is walk around, sleeping while standing, and not much in general.

While the Mother is still trying to figure herself out, she laid an egg last night! It was really cool! I have never seen a freshly laid egg and it was a very pale pink colour. The little chicks have grown quite a bit, except there is one that is slightly smaller than the rest. It moves slower than the others in terms of meal times, but also when frolicking, it is usually by herself. Hopefully, she will change that timidness.
