We have a New Hampshire Red that has hatched a tiny Japanese Bantam chick. She loves her baby and is very protective. We moved them back into the coop with a divider from the other chickens and kept them in a large cage for a week. We are on week 2 now so we went in and removed the cage. They now have their own area. My husband just went back to check on them and they were both in a nesting box (the divider is still up). The nesting box is 30 inches off the floor of the coop. How on earth did the baby get up there? Can mother hens carry their babies? There is no way this chick could jump up 30 inches. It is no taller than my pinky.
