My parents had been away on holiday and there must have been some eggs somewhere that I wasn't collecting. After they returned I went to feed the dogs with some eggs that were on the bench that my dad had collected and placed there. The second one I cracked had a baby in it. I was horrified and my dad took over making the doggy dinners. He cracked another one and I heard him say that one wasn't too good. I said if they're in there alive why can't we just put them back under a chicken. I heard him make another comment after an egg crack so I walked over and grabbed one of the 3 eggs off the bench and said nope, not this one. He then said if I shine a light on it that I should be able to see if there's a baby in it. Out of the 3 eggs left only one had a baby in it so I wrote lucky on it and put it under a chicken. Lucky just hatched today and my dad went back in and found it on the ground with a number of peck marks. He's not sure if it was the mum or the other chickens but I don't want to risk putting it back under the mum tonight in case it was her and she kills it. I currently have it in a shoe box with straw and water. How do I care for a newly hatched chick. My mum did some bread and water but I'm not sure cows milk is what a little chick needs. How do I take care of it?
