I have four orphan chicks. My hen Dusty just died in my arms. I'm so sad. We've had so many problems raising this batch of chicks. The babies are about four weeks old and starting to feather out a bit. We also live in South Texas and it's getting hot here, usually in the 80s-90s during the day. Do I need to bring the babies in? Should I hope that another hen takes them in? They've been living with the other hens just fine when momma was watching them. Now I'm not so sure how they'll do. Chip, the other hen who hatched out chicks has been perching with the rest of the flock for a while now, so I'm not sure she'll take them in.
