    never mind, [​IMG] It past away last night...

    We let a broody hen, (our first one ever) incubate 13 eggs (she chose to, we just moved her in out of the woods)

    9 of them hatched out Wed night, and a 10th today... the 10th is decidedly at a disadvantage being weaker. Momma also stepped on it.. ( I was watching, she decided to "feed" them and it was under her as she moved....)
    Should I go ahead and bring that one in and put it under a brooder lamp and raise it away from the others? or just let it be???
    I have the means to bring it in the house in a chinchilla cage with a brooder lamp etc....

    I would just let it be. It will catch up.

    Bring it in until it gets stronger (24 hours or so) then put it back under the hen at night.
