This is the second time this leghorn has gone broody. Her first time only produce one chick. But she was a good mom! Earlier in July I stopped her for a week or more before I let her finally have 3 eggs. She was determined, so I gave in. Anyway, tonight, Sunday before dark I went in the coop and heard tiny chirps! The baby was on the floor in a pile of shavings! Outside the nest. Now, looking back I realize she must have 'thrown' it there...... I put it under her--she ignored it. I went to get the large pet carrier to isolate her for the other two to hatch. When I put them; the baby and the two eggs inside---she was mad!! I looked in on her about 30 minutes later, the baby was not under her, and it was dead. A tiny hole was in the side of it's precious little head. I am flabbergasted. It is the most horrible thing I could imagine she would do! The chick was a little brown EE. Her other chick was also an EE, but she was white, and turned into one that is the pretty golden fronts & white. So, perhaps there was something wrong with it---or she didn't want a baby that didn't LOOK like her????!!!
