Hey everyone it has been awhile. My forum name is bad lol. Coyote killed my pack. I tore its head off but it planned it out attacked in daylight unheard off...Anyway I got few survivors. I can't have roosters but after the massacre I though I should train/convince my chickens to suicide bomb the coyote. I tell the chicken you go and kill them and you will get into chicken heaven there you can do whatever you chickens do in your version heaven. But lets get to the matter. I purchased 3 chicks. 1 is over 6 weeks the other 2 are 6 weeks old!! They are exotic breed don't know which one. Here is my questions for you guys. 1. I got older hens (1 year old+ under 2 years) but which one is best to see if she can take the orphans under her wing? 2. I got hens that were brooding recently can I introduce a hen like that to adopt these babies and take care of them? 3. My older hens are none aggressive but when I introduced 1 she nibbled at them to show dominance i guess. She nibbled at her neck when the young one was digging like crazy splashing food everywhere. She also nibbled at another young one when it bit her red comb LOL. Should I be worried? They are 6 weeks and fragile I don't want the giant fat old hen killing them. 4. The 2 chicks that are 6 weeks old do I need two give the water with vitamins in it? People say I don't have to so I give them tap water for now. Awaiting your wise replies anxiously. Thanks all.
