Thanks! Yes those are roosts thrown in there but they're out of the way to get to the chicks. I made it so it can be a broody coop, seperation/isolation coop, or seperated breeding pen. I told hubby I need 3 interchangeable signs saying "maternity ward", "brothel", and "infirmary" lol. The nonslip thing was something hubby had laying around that he got for lining his tool box drawers when he used to work in a garage. I threw that in there when I saw my first bornbabywas getting splayed legs. In my hurry to get them out of the coop I had forgotten about slippery floors. I'll do my best to secure that run. I definitely don't want to lose any more babies.
maybe I'll try that tomorrow. Any idea how long you need to keep the bandage on for it to work? Right now I'm using medical tape and the gap in between the legs is about the width of the tape. At first, the pure little thing was falling all over the place and stumbling like crazy. Now the little one seems to be figuring out how to get around all bundled up.
Cookie had already started teaching the babies to eat. Kinda surprised me since I thought they didn't start eating for 3 days. The one baby that hatched either last night or early this morning was standing in the food dish chowing away and then pecking at the water lol. I forsee a chubby chick! Anyways, wish me luck! Tomorrow is day 21 for Clouds eggs! (I think. Do you count day one as the day you give the hen the eggs or is day one the next day lol)
If you set her eggs on a Thursday she should hatch on a Thursday, though I have found broody hens often start a day early.
