If you have read any of my posts you know I had a blue silkie born 8 days ago with a lame leg. Tried to do what I could but decided I would let her learn to live with her handicap. She gets around with one leg...eats and drinks fine. Today I hatched a baby that i had to help out (peeped from the small end and could not make it out by itself) It has been weak all day so I finally took it out...gave it sugar water and put it in with my lame chick...my grandson named her Phil Better. She is 8 days old and being a mommy to this still not quite dry ..weak little chick. She is letting it stay under her and is being so gentle with it. I never would have believed it. I asked yesterday about putting the new ones with the week ols and was told to wait a few days. There is no way I would have put it with the others as they are so rowdy. But, what a heart warming sight this is!!
