Hi, fellow chicken fans, Our broody hen, who's always been a terrific mother and always hatched out (and loved on) 100%, sat on the last batch of eggs for 26 days before we found some babies this weekend to pull a switch on her with. Sunday night we took out her eggs and replaced them with newly hatched babies. (we're now wondering if our rooster is no longer fertile!) Yesterday morning we found her attacking one of the babies, and one baby was already damaged. We rescued both- the worst one died and the other is fine, inside the house in a box. She's accepted the rest of the chicks as if she hatched them out. Why in the world would she attack just one or two out of 9? This one that we have in the house is dark with a white head. Could she be going after that patch of white on his head? Is there anything we can do to make him more acceptable? We really don't want to have to raise this baby by hand in the house- that poor thing needs a mama! Suggestions? Please?! Thank you!
