Maggie is a great Mother Hen, and has hatched eggs two years now. She hatched 3 early this year, and hatched one on June 16th. This morning I see that she had abandoned her chick. He/she is still rather small and is the only chick. I'm hoping that the other chickens (I have 40) don't attack it and kill it now that Mama's protection is gone. She came out of the run this morning and high tailed it into the coop, I think to lay again. Have you had any experience with this? Do you think the chick will be ok? His name is Pauly is a boy and Polly if a girl. Hatched out on Husband's birthday. What do y'all think???
