Happy Mother’s Day Ruby

Happy Mother’s Day to Ruby today! Last summer Ruby informed us that she would like to be a mum and after deliberating what to do, we wanted to help Ruby do what nature was telling her, and so arrived Crystal, Pearl and Sapphire.

Ruby spent weeks keeping them warm and showing them the delights of the indoor and outdoor world and chirping to them when she found something tasty for them to eat. The chicks are almost all grown up now and have long left Ruby’s wings and are bigger than Ruby herself now, establishing their own position in the flock; hopefully Ruby still looks out for them and remembers the 3 tiny creatures that used to pop their heads out from under her.
