You think the chicks are hurting the chicks that are just pips? And was that a "No" about the paper towels?

CHICKEN HAWK

 

KEEP the newspaper in there as you have it, just push down on it to flatten it and put layers of papertowels over it for the first week!  so their little feet can get around and your good!   and then after a week pull up the papertowels and you have the newspaper thereafter!

If memory serves they supplemented him with multivitamins and extra protein, leafy greens, healthy foods and that helped. 


Oh my goodness sumi!  What a difference in size!  She was one pretty lucky baby to have you to take care of her, and from the sounds of it, the other chickens too.  Amazing how smart they are.  Not enough credit given.  I hear folks saying..that was one stupid chicken, yeah, stupid like a mule, and we all know that they are stubborn, not stupid. 

Wonderful family, very understanding husband when it comes to chickens, dogs, birds, one big Golden Retriever, and thankful to the Lord for all!

X2 this is what they do. Plan on keeping those hatched babies in there for at least 24 hours. They are not even fluffed yet.

Sometimes newspaper works fine, but very often it causes splayed legs. Much easier to prevent splayed legs than treat them. To be safe, it's best to use something that gives them traction. Even a cloth towel or a rag, or wash clothes.
