    You should separate the mama and babies from the rest of the flock so this doesn't happen again. Other hens can eat babies that aren't theirs! [​IMG]
    Also you should take the baby chick inside and check for any other damage done. If he's really hurt then you should care for it inside in a brooder until it's better. [​IMG] Hope the little one is okay!

    Just keep an eye out for them then. If you can separate the mama and chicks from the flock like I said then that will be even better! [​IMG] Good luck with your mama and babies!
