Just had 14 unexpected babies born! I missed the pile of eggs in the back corner of the coop :(
Most are fine but 4 were born with no covering on their skulls. They are doing well removed from others, eating, drinking, etc. I didn't get two soon enough, they were kicked out of the nest and probably pecked. The back of their skulls is hard and not bleeding anymore. I've been using Neosporin.
Could this be from a weird cross? I have 4 bantam cochin hens and 1 Delaware (Who's never made any babies) and 1 Possible recessive Polish, he was a mix but you cant tell, doesn't look like one. Standard/Bantam cross? Help!
This picture is a few days old, they're healing nicely!
