i had a black sex link hen take missing about a month ago. saturday, i found her in my yard, with 14 chicks, 7 black,,7 yellow. i live in the country, and apparently she had gotten under the landing of my deck, and nested. yesterday, i heard a loud peeping, under the deck. i removed a few deck boards with a cordless drill, and there was a chick,, just hatched,, and wet. my wife put it in her shirt against her chest, to let it dry, and keep warm. [ i'm in mississippi, and it's hot, the chick couldn't get too cold it seems ]i brought it in the house and put it in a cardboard box, wrapped in a baby blanket, with a heating pad on low, under the box. i got it out this morning, and tried to let it drink some water, from a full coffee cup, but i wasn't sure if it was drinking,, or choking,, or even to do that or not..... i desperately need some step-by-step instructions to save the little fella, as it was so much trouble getting it in the firsst place. it is black, with a white spot on his head, so i assume it is a little rooster. i really want to save him,, so please advise me as when/how to water, what/how to feed. i'm gonna let mother nature take her course with the older chicks, as momma hen takes them back under the deck at night. eventually, i will get them all into the hen house, with the other hens. i have 16 sex link hens, and a rhode island red rooster. i let the other chickens out in the morning, and they do not bother the chicks. however,,,,, this chick cannot walk yet, seems weak, and my plan was to slip it into the peep flock, and hope it takes up with the others,, when it got a few days old,,,??????? if you can help me,, please post,,, and thanks in advance.
