Denise: You remember Lucky – the just-hatched chick Jonathan saved from imminent death? Well he’s growing fast, and looking to be a good healthy cockerel. We can’t put him in with the rest of the flock because, it’s pity but true, they’ll pick on him and he could be pecked to death. Better the other way around, a lonesome hen will generally accept – and in truth may well be very glad for – the company of a number of youngsters. So as soon as it looked like he was going to survive, we put a load of Welsumer eggs into an incubator and … here they are together for the fast time, Lucky and a random three of the wee chicks. The chicks are cute, of course, but poor Lucky’s at the scruffy stage, as different parts of his body take it in turns to grow adult feathers. Currently, it’s his head!
