New Chicks in the Coop

We have a new brood of chicks in the coop. This one was the first to drop down from the nest as others were still hatching. It will be interesting to see which hen the chicks identify as the mother, since two different hens have been sitting on the eggs!

We have another junior rooster situation brewing. The daddy rooster has decided the coop isn't big enough for him and his adolescent rooster son. He won't allow him to stay on the same side of the pen and chases him away any time Junior tries to get close. One of them is destined to become dinner, I'm afraid, unless we can find a new home for Junior.
