    I'm still in tears. I had a few more Creve eggs saved up but pulled them from my website and put them into my 'bator last night. Fertility and hatchability has been awesome, chick survivability, not so great. I hatched three not too long ago and lost one within 24 hours of hatching and the other on Tuesday. The third one was the largest and seems to be doing well...

    Thank you! I've had chickens ranging around for a long time and none of them have ever been stomped before. [​IMG] Although I have my idea on which one it was--because I've seen her show agression towards poultry before...

    That sucks!!! Maybe your roo flew behind your horse and startled it????

    I've had horses and don't think they would purposely hurt a chicken.

    Best of luck with your hatch.

    Well, this particular mare HATES chickens...especially near HER food....he was for sure stomped. My horses are pretty much bomb-proof...especially this mare. She just turned 18 and not much phases her!​
