I have been letting my bantam hens brood in the coop. There were six hens brooding in different corners of the coop (they won't use the nesting boxes). These are two red cochins, two frizzles and two silkies. In one corner a red cochin and a silkie were "raising" two chicks that hatched about a week and a half or two weeks ago. They were also sitting on a clutch of eggs. When one mama got up to eat, the other sat on the eggs. We've had a couple crushed eggs with dead chicks but they seemed to be great moms - until today. I just went out to check on them and the one baby looked dead, lying on it's side. The other baby was sitting up shreiking with a gash just above it's wing. I've taken the babies out of the coop and have them in a brooder box with food, water and a heat lamp. I've been very lucky and over the past several years have never had a chickie 9-1-1 but now what. What else should I be doing? And, if they survive and heal up do I give them back to their mamas? I'm at a total loss here, but I want to do everything I can to help these little ones life.
