Was walking by the garbage can just now and I heard peeping from inside. But I'm getting ahead of myself. We had two hens hatch 8 chicks about 10 days ago. After they left the nest, I collected the unhatched eggs, tapped them to see if anything was ready to hatch, and then put them in the garbage. Now, our garbage pickup is Monday, but that was memorial day. I forgot to put the garbage out last Saturday to account for the holiday. So, the garbage is very stinky and crawling with maggots from all the eggs and other food refuse. Well, I guess there was enough moisture in the can, and it has been very warm, especially warm and humid last night. So, basically, the garbage can incubated this chick for the last week. A miracle. But probably with a sad ending, as the two hens won't take her/him. I have another hen that has been broody for two months, I'll try and stick the chick under her tonight. But, the chick has already seen the other hens and it a little stressed out already. So, even if the chick stays under there all night, I doubt a connection will be made. I can't see try to raise the chick alone in a brooder. If anyone has just received an order of chicks in South Jersey, and would like an extra, let me know. I'll drive it over. It is probably a California White and Barred Rock cross. Although, it might be a third generation mutt.
