Hello all! What a wonderful site this is! Every time I've ever had a question about our misfit chicken gang I find the help I need here, so I decided to sign up today. Although I have an immediate problem and need help in the worse way. Momma hen has a clutch of about twelve eggs (six are hers and six from a hen that just got eaten by a coyote..RIP Repecka). A chick was born two weeks ago, then another the day after but the second was found dead later that day. Then another was born this morning but momma and the first chick started eating it's face! When I got home from work the poor thing was suffering so we took care of it...RIP lil chicken. Now I notice that either momma or the first chickie are breaking the shell of an egg in the clutch and eating it! Needless to say I'm not impressed with nature right now. So my question is will a heat lamp and a crate with straw be suffice to hatch these chicks and if so, how do baby chicks do without momma? I'd appreciate any all and help. Thank you.
