Hi all -
New here and just became a very reluctant baby chick mom an hour ago when my spouse couldn't stand to watch a one week old(?)
chick as it desperately ran from adult to adult trying to get underneath someone for warmth. When a rooster started attacking it we became parents.
Since we live in the Caribbean, there are chickens everywhere and there's a new mom just down the block from us. Is there any way to convince this mom to take on a new baby? I don't see a future for this wee sprout without a real mom.
Any clues deeply appreciated. Love your site - within 5 minutes I knew what to feed and how warm it needed to be!
Thanks in advance,
