I'm so mad I could spit!!!! What the heck is WRONG with my silkies?? They're supposed to be the best mothers, blah blah blah. Well, NOT MINE!!! I have picked up over the last 48 hours, probably 6 dead babies, kicked out of the nests. Fluffed up, look fine - and they're dead on the ground. I have five hens that are sharing one big nest. I go out at least 3 times a day to rescue baby chicks - but I DONT understand what the hell is happening here. I know people all over that have their silkies raise their own babies - WHY not here? Nothing is getting the babies. There are no apparent wounds or anything. Its like they are thrown out of the nest once they are born and thats it, they're dead. The ones I rescue and put in the brooder are great, thriving, healthy birds. WHAT IS GOING ON!!? I'm about ready to kick the silkies off their nests and say screw it! Of course all the dead babies are my beautiful blues I have been waiting for.................. HELP!!!
