For Biniyam’s 6th birthday we gave him a little chick. Because a chick would be lonely on its own we also gave his sisters a chick to share.
“Pickily Pickle-Juice Pickle” is the name Bini chose.
It has been fun to see Biniyam take on the roll of father and protector of his little chick, guarding her every move when out of her pen and gently instructing her on where she should go to hunt for grasshoppers.
He obviously adores her (as do all the kids) and we are really hopping that she survives the rest of our stay in Burundi.
