Here is our chick hatched by our broody hen. The other 2 eggs she was sitting on had fully formed chicks that both died in the eggs. I was encouraged by advice I read where folks described their positive experiences with broody hens taking care of their chicks and keeping the other hens away if necessary. Now I know that my hens won't tolerate chicks, so this problem will never recur. The concern now is what to expect in the healing process of this chick. We didn't expect it would survive past the first couple of days, but a week later it's doing well. It still hasn't opened its injured eye, and I'm not sure if there is an eye in the socket or not. There has been no oozing from the closed lid at all. It's eating, drinking, pooping and trilling happily. The injured back is not weepy at all. I haven't put anything on it for the last 4 days. I guess I'm looking for advice from folks who have seen injuries like this, and wondering if there's any chance for a full recovery or if infection will ultimately claim this chick's life. At what point can we feel we're out of the woods? Thanks for any advice.
