I had a mama Dutch Bantam that decided to nest in my tiny, fenced in 8 ft sq garden in the front yard. I tried to move her, but no go. Her chicks started hatching 2 days ago. Tonight my dogs heard commotion and then I heard peeps from chicks. When I went outside, I found a opossum eating the mother and chicks scattered. I managed to get all 5 chicks, although it was the middle of the night and really dark. One chick was dead. Another chick has most of skin on top of head missing and loss of blood. I put colloidal silver on it. One eye might be injured, but I can't tell right now. I quickly hooked up my incubator in the house to keep them warm (it's cold here in NC) and I am feeding them GroGreen supplement. I found the remarkable update on the homemade chick starter on this site. I will make that tomorrow. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what I should do? I'm really distraught and about to cry over the loss of the mother. Dutch Bantams are precious chickens. I'm new to this forum, so I hope I'm on the right track.
