The one and only

Yes, that little chick with Mrs. Dandy is the one and only. She started out with three healthy chicks and now we are down to one. I'm doing my best to keep them safe. I have had them in the dog kennel and somehow the chick gets out every day. So then, of course, Mrs. Dandy gets frantic and flies over the top of the kennel. Every night I put them back in and every day they get out again. Mrs. Dandy is ferocious about keeping the other animals away from the chick, but let's face it, we are dealing with a pea(fowl) sized brain here, so we'll just have to hope for the best.

(And, yes, I am embarrassed to admit that these two peafowl sized brains are figuring out how to outsmart me by escaping from the pen every day!)


  1. Sad about losing the chicks, but too funny about being outsmarted... I feel your pain.

  2. Oh goodness surely peacocks must be smarter than guinea least Mrs. Dandy has some mothering instincts. I hope the chick makes it.

  3. hi! i just have to say that the photo looks cute :)
