Little Red and the chicks

Little Red is the most skittish of all my hens, so if she even sees us looking at her from the window of the house she goes on alert, and if we go outside she takes the chicks back into the dog carrier and hides them. If we want the chicks to grow up to be friendly chickens I should probably take them away from her and raise them ourselves, but that's a lot of work and she's doing a good job with them so far. I think I'll just let her keep at it for now.
