Baby Chick Stays Very Close to Mama

The rest of the hens (and the rooster) are leaving the chick alone, but he still hangs around mama for security. Not always a perfect plan — I saw baby go tumbling when he got behind mama’s foot just as she was vigorously scratching to dig up a nibble. He sat for a moment, trying to figure out what had just happened, but then jumped back up and ran back to mama. Chickens are not the best at figuring things out.
