The Importance of Digging

Niji-hime 虹姫 is showing her chicks the importance of digging. Her seven chicks watch her every move. They dart in and out between her leggs, snatching any worms or bugs she digs out of the ground. Chicks are born knowing how to scratch. They’ll do it even if they don’t have a mother to show them. But with a mother showing them and protecting them, they are much calmer and more confident.
