Oh Man! Not The Chickie!

Well Mama Chickie successfully hatched a surrogate egg of a buff orington/barred rock cross. Oh she was so proud! Yeah I’m talking past tense. She hatched him a day ago. Successfully kept him warm and safe through the freezing temperature last night. This morning I poked my head out the window and got these pictures of the little one.

A few hours later I heard Mama Chickie raising a fit on the front porch. I had a feeling. A bad feeling. And I was right. One of the two juvenile kittens, Jasper, had eaten the poor thing. This is the guilty party.
