Broody hatch 1 chick 4 days ago ...then 2 more yesterday ...... thia am I checked on them , they were fine ..... 2 hours later I check , and the 4 day old chick was about 6 ' inches away from Mama , almost dead !!! Brought chick in house, made it drink water , warmed it up ...... it lived !!!! But now it is crying being alone !! So, I put it back out with Mama ...so far so good ..... QUESTION ..... I have hen/chicks in cat carrier , with a wired pen .... inside the big hen house area .... mama was setting on chicks outside the nest when I just checked on them !!!! It's like the chicks went out to explore , and instead of Mama getting them 3 back in the nest , she just gathered them where they were !!! Will they be ok all night , with Mama .....or should I lock them up in the cat carrier all night , let them out in the am ????? Remember , the first chick was I guess 'lost ' 6 inches from mama and almost died !!! I guessing from lack of warmth ??
