Day 22 and still nothing :( - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I recently hatch out some eggs but 2 out of 10 eggs hatched. I gave the chicks to the mum, and she will rear them. Suprisingly I think the mum was a little disappointed in me. They were lakenvelder chicks, and they were so fluffy and small. Sadly on passed away last night so there's only one left. What should I do to try and keep the last one alive???? sad.png btw the 2 hatched the 24 day.

Definitely give it some electrolytes. Like sugar water or go out and buy sav a chick. It'll just give it that extra little boost. Of its with its mom then it should be okay just make sure they are seperate from the flock

This is my little nugget. I'm not sure what to name her but today I'm going to go out and find some buddies for her. A few farms around me should have baby chicks by now
