Well, when your momma hen dies just days before her chicks hatch, and you don’t have an incubator because you were never prepared for real chick eggs in the first place, you must improvise!

So in comes Greenie the Alligator! 

We’re new to this chicken stuff so we’re really just trying to do our best! I figured it was already warm and humid outside so all I really needed was something soft to cover the eggs until we could find a better solution. So I asked my five year old to help, and this is what he came up with, which worked for me! 😊

Strength and honor momma hen! You went in valor protecting those you love!
