So 3 days ago my 2 silkie hens hatched a chick from one of my other chickens. They sat on the egg together, left the nest for short periods of time, and did a great job for the time it took to hatch the chick. For the first couple of days after the chick hatched, the silkies again barely left the nest and were very good at keeping the chick warm. Today I noticed that they have been out of the nest more often, walking around and seem more restless. The chick is wandering around, following the silkies (out of the nest for about 30 min). I have noticed them calling to her, eating & drinking with her, etc. But the chick's feet seemed so cold! Now they are back in the nest - The silkies are about 11 months old- I'm worried that they may give up - shouldn't they be snuggling with her all the time? Or am I worrying needlessly? This is the first time we have hatched a chick (naturally or incubator) so just want to make sure all is well!
