a while back I noticed this hen staying in the field across from the house. She never left the right side for very long. Then one day while driving down the road I see her and 8 hatchlings heading my way. Cool, they are all about 6 inches tall and running as fast as they can across the road. 2 weeks later I see them in the road again except they are about 8 inches tall, but only there are 3 poults plus hen.

For the last month I have been taking a few photos here and there as they visit my front yard every morning. 2 of them and the hen anyhow. Sometime over the last week 3 more hens showed up alone and running with the 1st hen who now has but 1 poult.

This morning while heading down the road a single hen flew out across my path. In the road was a 6-8 feathers that looked to be from a young bird. Back at the house as I came home three lone hens crossed my driveway. While one lone hen was crossing the road where the feather were now gone.

here is one of my favorite photos as they walked down the road in front of my home



and this one the hen thought she was hiding I guess as she let me get pretty close

You have a varmint problem that needs to be eliminated. You hate to see the the whole clutch disappear.
