|Momma bird checks out the morning snack buffet of|
lettuce, boiled egg, soaked seed , cucumber and corn.
Below is a quick video of the mother hen, still wet from a bird bath, getting comfortable with the chicks beneath her. She gives a couple of whistles, which signals the male bird that she's seated and ready for food. He feeds her from the food he has stored in the crop in his neck, similar to a hamster's. The camera was leaning on the cage and magnified the sounds of the busy male bird.
