So my hen had five chicks hatch: Winifred, Gus, Eunice, Gladys, and Homer. Homer is a very special little chick. I think he hatched early because when I first saw him, he was bleeding really bad and still had his egg sac attached to him. I was going to put him out of his misery when he looked up at me with his one eye (yes, he only has one eye) and peeped. I couldn't do it. Thinking he didn't have long, I stuck him back under his mother and waited. That was yesterday. Today little Homer is running around with the other chicks, absolutely fine, and seems to be in great shape (with the exception that he only has one eye).
