An Egg Hatches . . .

Babe went broody about a month ago and was sitting on seven eggs at one point.  Slowly a couple disappeared (I think jealous Mate was to blame), a couple broke prematurely and eventually only one hatched.

The chick fluffed up quickly, was christened Mahogany, and, after being MIA with its mother for two days, is finally contained and growing well.  Note to self: chicks make almost as much noise when mothered by a hen as when mothered by me!
