Life without Mom

Penguin, the mother hen who was so faithful to her eggs and chicks, made a dramatic transformation back to a regular egg-laying hen this week. She laid her first egg in three months and now chases her chicks away. Here's a photo of them on their own.

Update: She's getting quite mean -- even tackling them to peck them if they get close to the food. I'm having to put food out in multiple places. This can't go on for much longer...
