This roo/hen has been squaking and turning about in the nest the last 2days. i thought it was a roo although it is much older the the other chicks its with so maybe i just decided it was a roo because its huge comb and waddles. what do you think? i have no clue now it looks like its trying super hard to lay yet nothing has come out. she/he hasnt left the nest until i went out today to snap a pic and of course it jumped down. is feathering and grooming the nest. Maybe He is confused as to what his job is. he/she is about 18weeks old. Ive heard of roosters showing hens how to groom and trying to intice (sp?) the hens into the nests. He/she also makes a God awful sound while laying in the nest. unlike a crow ive ever heard. also the pic of the buff hen she is 12weeks and her neck is super short and shes not eat but trying to drink lots. she can hold her head up at times but she doesnt when she takes a drink. she walks around fine pecks at food but the is just bone. I have 4 others tha hatched the same day they are all pretty thick but there is nothing to this baby girl she friendly and follows you around like she waiting for food. i mashed up some food to liquid form and fed it to her bu then she walks around with her mouth open. since ive been syringe feeding her shell open her mouth to me. but nothing really goes down. her croup is non exsistant completely empty. she not compact.
