Diary of a Mother Hen – Day 1


Saturday, April 19th

Harumi and Kotori, the rescued chicks of Triangle Chance for All, are cozily settled in our bathroom. I’ve been sitting in there with them for the past hour reading about chickens and their care. The girls busily ate, drank, and swallowed some grit while I read. I put my book down when Harumi made a lovely, little trill. I did my very best to mimic what I had heard. She responded to my trill with one of her own. I trilled, and she trilled back while tilting her little head and looking up at me. We did this back and forth several more times! I’m loving this experience, and I believe they are, too!
