I got home last night and found that my group of cochin and silkie hens had hatch yet another baby. They are all sharing the same eggs and are not holding them so they all hatch at the same time they are just laying and sitting so I'm getting a couple of chicks a day from them. The all share eggs sit on the same eggs and don't bother the chicks when they hatch but they don't take care of the chicks either. One could easy get off and take care of the chicks while the others sit on the eggs. Well, when I got home the chick was outside the nest "dead" sprawled out on is stomach legs straight out behind him eyes closed mouth open not breathing his body was COLD. I thought it must have died because it was to cold. I picked it up to take it and bury it...... I felt its heart beating I couldn't believe it I gentle shook him touched is face eyes beak no response........I took him in to the brooder put him under the heat gave him some water with a syringe with in one hour he was up eyes open and alive. He has NO idea how close he was to crossing over.
