Remember the clutch of eggs that Leghorn was sitting? Well, as it turned out the blue egg is the only one that hatched. Leghorn sat her other eggs for about a week, and then gave up on them.
Meanwhile, our little chick is about a month old.
She seems to be doing quite well. Leghorn has proven to be a good surrogate mother.
The chick is in that awkward phase, where some of her adult feathers are starting to come in.
She definitely takes after her mother, Natasha, who is an Ameraucana chicken. It would be neat if she ends up laying blue eggs too (some of them also lay green eggs).
She is also skittish and shy like her mother. Although she may also be more skittish because unlike the rest of our flock, she was raised outside of the house, so she hasn't received much handling.
Pierce has been calling her Cheep Cheep.
I'm linking up today with Angela's Show and Tail, which can be found at her blog WV Treasures.
