Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #145: Getting to Know You

Last summer, a number of chicks hatched from the incubator. As the chicks grow, you really get to know their characters.

There are the cute ones.

The cheeky ones.

The shy ones.

The bossy ones.

Now we have new chicks and the getting to know you will start all over again.

In memory of Mac – who was one of the shy ones.

    Oh! This reminds me of the 6 hens who live at the Taj MaCoop here on this property. I haven’t gotten to know them well at all, and I’m embarrassed that I can never remember all their names. One of them is Gertrude Stein, I do know. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for joining the challenge and sharing this relationship!

      Some day you will have to get some, though they need their own space away from precious garden plants ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love it – such sweeties! What happened to Mac though? Old or taken by the fox? We had hens when I was a child, and I remember grandmother being attacked by another Mac…

      Poor Max was taken. We are not sure if it was fox, mink or pine marten. Just feathers left unfortunately.

    I’m so sorry you lost Mac Karina, he looks like such a sweet soul. Do you have any of his offspring? The different personalities in your flock are a treat to see and the new chicks look adorable ๐Ÿงก

      Yes, he was a gentle soul – got picked on a bit by the others, so my daughter spoilt him in return. We have a coupe of cockerels so it’ll be hard to tell if any of the new chicks are his or not
