She let the hens and chicks out of the coop…

…and watched mama hen teach the chicks to peck and scratch for food…

  1. These little hens and chicks are just adorable. I love the way they are pecking away at the feed. Eugenia’s little bucket is as pretty as she it. Love this story. You come up with the best stories.

  2. Marie Claire is enchanted by Eugenia’s apron and her flock. She immediately ran to check on her own flock. Such delightful photos and wonderful little chicks and hen! And of course the lovely Eugenia!
