I have mama and the 3 day old chicks close up in a biggish coop. I let mama out to poop and based on what others have said I was too trusting of the others and let one into the coop. Well, my big Light Sussex just tried to eat the little LS. I love that chick. the only LS of the brood and so curious and strong.
She carried the chick out of the coop before Mama and I got her back.
She drew blood on the neck - the chick was able to walk and stand and poop and is now falling asleep in the coop with the others.
My daughters will be devastated if she dies. I was too trusting of the other hens. What are the chances the chick will survive?
Should I take the chick out and put neosporin or anything on the wound?
