    in front of her pretty cold! [​IMG] =/ I actually thought it was dead but touched it and it immediately started to cheep so i (my hens really really sweet) pushed it up under her and she accepted the chick and the chick you could tell was trying to get up under her! Did I do right? WRONG? Should I go get it and put it under a brooder light? It didnt look like it was drying out right! [​IMG] BUT, it is NASTY raining weather!

    Watch it VERY close! She may be rejecting it for some unseen reason. If it gets left out again... take it to the light! Better safe than sorry.

    Yes - set up the brooder - its too cold outside this time of year to leave this one alone. Maybe momma doesn't know just what to do with a chick yet?
