Hey everyone
I have 1 baby naked neck-turken that that I got a few days ago, I was told that my mom Dutch Bantam would take it as she has 4 chicks of her own but when I tried introducing it to her she turned her back at it in disgust, does anyone know any tips of encouraging her to accept it? I have put a brooder up for the chick in the mean time.

This often works well if the chick is a day or two old and the mama has no other chicks, or else her other chicks just hatched. I suspect these were too old, and I don't think I would try it again,myself.
