I have a very broody Silkie hen raising two full size chicks (Golden Comet) and 5 assorted bantams. This morming I found one of the D'Uccle bantam chicks dead when she'd seemed totally healthy the night before. Could one of the same-age full size chicks have accidentally smothered her? Do I need to separate the bantam babies from the two full size chicks? Thanks..
