Chick flicks

Our Moorhens have been busy and they now have some extra mouths to feed. Of the original seven chicks, five have survived and are doing well. Now we have a second brood of five chicks.

The Moorhen is unusual in that the first brood of chicks help feed and raise the second brood, Here are some pictures that demonstrate this:-
