We put three eggs under our bluebell, none of them were hers, 1 hatched 10 days ago, and its up for anything. should it be running around, with ours and mums supervision, will it pick up germs. Mum is fab, she calls chick to come come when new food source arrives, should the chick be eating what mum gives her. You read so much about the heat they need, the chick crumb food, (which it has) ours has been in a separate pen with mum from day 1 and just runs under the feathers when its cold. I haven't got a clue what breed it is, or if its a hen (I do hope so, as my other chickens are a bit old for a young buck). Can anyone help on this.
