    It is the cardinal duty of mothers in general! But at times, a hen has to peck to help the chick come out if the shell is hard! (Report) Reply

    Of course, Valsa! Doing anything through dire need is warranted. Doing anything through over enthusiasm can spoil everything. Thanks very much for your view.
