Spring 2017 – Mother’s Day Surprise!

Do you remember Mrs. Silkie, with her secret nest, from further down this news feed? Well, today she proudly got off her nest – followed by 6 gorgeous chicks! What a perfect sight on Mother’s Day!

Here they are in the sunshine on their first little outing. It’s her first time at being a mum and she is doing a great job. Silkies make great parents. They were often kept by gamekeepers in the past, to rear baby pheasants, because they love being mums so much!
