Found a broody hen with chicks and eggs - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Uggggggg bless it's little heart. I am not sure. I have had this happen also and lost most of them.
The last one I ran and turned on my little incubator and put it in there.

Maybe try putting it under a heat lamp?? BUT NOT TOO HOT ya know?

First Time Chicken Chick, learning as I go. So far, So good

A nice mix of about 25 ladies and 1 rotten Lavender Rooster

UPDATE @ 7:pm--- Chick did not make it :(

 

 

 

It hatched this morning, but the hen tried to kill it. I caught it too late :(

I moved the little guy to a tub with a heat lamp (all I had). Its breathing but not active. Not sure its chances of surviving now. It happened

so quickly, at 6am hatched and chirping! And then by 7am almost dead........
