Millie the Mille Fleur hen can’t have chicks of her own, but she is a loving foster mother. She accepts any orphaned baby chicken.
Then one day Farmer Cate rescues a turkey poult (baby turkey) who’s being pecked by the other turkeys. With no turkey foster mothers around, Farmer Cate has no choice but to try Millie. Will she accept such a different baby?
She puts the two of them together, holds her breath, and watches as Millie makes up her mind.
Based on a true story, Millie’s tale is for any child who has ever felt lonely or uncertain and wished for people to love them best of all.
