Meet The Flock – The Mayor

The Mayor, light brahma, dark brahma, chick, hen

The Mayor earned her name when she was just a few days old. Being one of the early hatchers of the bunch, she was moved from the incubator to the brooder a couple days before most of her siblings. She quickly became the leader of the brooder, and any time we opened it, would run out to investigate what the commotion was all about, leading us to dubbing her “The Mayor”. Whenever new chicks were added, she would immediately take those new additions under her wing- showing them where the food and water were, and making sure to wrangle up any little peeps that strayed too far from the heat for too long.
