    We had our broody game mamma that hatched 5 chicks Sunday. Today she took them all outside ( it was 90 degrees today ). 1 of 5 chicks looked really tired and would just sleep. She did not follow mamma and got left behind. I took her inside and tried giving her some water with lots of nutrients to try to help give it a boost. What should I do? Should I leave it with mamma or take it and put it in a brooder? I don't want it to be left behind and get killed by another chicken. Please help

    Bringing it inside would give it a better chance. If it can't keep up with momma and the others, it might not be able to survive.

    If it builds strength from your TLC I would reintroduce her. Play it by ear and if it doesn't go well take her back [​IMG]
