My hen recently hatched three cute healthy babies. They were three days old today, They all seemed very healthy and active earlier today. Well, I went outside to go check on them and I noticed one was missing. So, I looked in the back of the pen and there he was just laying there and at first I thought, he was sleeping but he didnt ever try and run away from me, so, I grabbed him and noticed he was breathing funny. I hurried up and brought him in and gave him some drops of water. he couldnt walk or anything, He kept opening his mouth. I held him for 15 mins. and he ended up dying It was so hard to have him pass away in my hands and I couldnt do anything. I just dont know what caused that to happen, I couldnt see anything wrong with him. Could it of been the heat? I think it got about 100 today. Do you think I should bring the other two inside, so I can take care of them? or should I just let momma hen do that? This is my first time having a hen hatch eggs. Ive always incubated them and took care of them. He was the little yellow one.
