    Hi all..
    i hatched some chicks (some under hen, some in incubator)
    my brother had a broody hen sitting on eggs, so after mine incubated we did a swapsy.. this morning hen had taken to only one of the 3 chicks (2 black and a white) and today he returned to me one black and one very pecked little white one.
    i had a close look, pecking is pretty bad, lots of exposed flesh.
    i have sprayed with an anticeptic spray and put in the incubator for warmth (still one egg to hatch)
    please advice on some good tips to help the little chick out..
    i will give it some food and water ASAP

    Sorry to hear about you chick. Sounds like you're doing what you need to do for it.
