Hi all. Currently have broody bantams sat on eggs. Have had several hatch and the first 3 were fine with the flock. However, I since have had 13 chicks hatch and im guessing having a rogue chicken remove from under mother hen and take from nesting box. Obviously gotten cold and died. Since this I have been waiting for eggs to be a fair way into pipping and then bringing in under heater to complete. So far have had a further 9 chicks survive by doing this. Is there any way I can prevent another hen killing chicks oter then finding and removing said bird. Although havent a clue which hen is doing deed. Oh yesterday we had our first ever naked neck chick hatch. Does anyone know how soon chicks can be sexed too? There mixed bantam breeds and some silkie chicks.
