Just hatch 3 little beauties from Onthespot eggs, my mille fleurs girl was taking a very good care of therm... i made a "coop in the coop" for them where they could be safe from the big girls but couls also go out and explore. Everything went well for 3 days but this morning I found 2 little guys dead on the floor of the coop and my mother with a little one wounded in a corner

I took them out right away and put them in the kids play house for safety... Socialisation is not going to be easy after all !!!

. I hope the little one left does alright. I have read a few times its better to not allow mom back with the flock for a few weeks even if they have shelter to go back too. I don't have chickens yet and your story will be remembered by me (and everyone who reads your post) as a hard lesson learned and we can do it differently. Again, my sincerest sympathies--but truly grateful you shared this.
