    Yay so excited for you Red, maybe you will get back to a little fuzzy butt. For the rest of you wondering minds I explained to red after learning all the facts that the egg he brought into the house was malpositioned, chick was head down in the small end & that momma probably was helping it so it could breath. And that since he didn't have a thermometer & that it could be up to 24 hrs before this chick absorbed its yoke that probably the best chance he had of it surviving was under momma. But when he goes to take the egg back out to carry it cupped in his hand & gently put it back in the nest under momma from the backside. This way she won't see it & if she was intending harm the first go around that maybe she wouldn't bother it anymore. Prayers for you Red that your momma has a successful hatch.

    Back from the Dr. I'm good. Now I have arthritis pills so I won't have to be miserable this winter. It rained all night and I woke up hurting. As soon as the sun came out and it warmed up, I was ok.

    I'm available for emergency phone calls now Red. Lol

    Well worst nightmare happened. I pull in the yard to find my dog with the broody in her mouth trying to rip her apart. I hollered at the dog and he left her alone. To my surprise She got up and run. Her tail is almost ripped off and the wing may be broke. I washed her good ,poured peroxide on the wounds and then triple ointment. I have no idea how to keep a bandage on it. Looked where the dog had busted through the kennel to get her and the egg that I thought was zipping had hatched. Got the chick and the eggs under the heat lamp. When can I try to get the baby to drink? And how do I do it. This may quality as one of my worst days of my life. I blame no one but myself. I should've never left the dog out but I have everyday and nothing has happened. I know that a coyote could've done the same . Know I know unfortunately.
