As the title states, one of my hens sneaked out of the new coop and started sleeping in my old coop. I didn't think much of it until two nights ago when I saw her wandering around at 8:00pm and thought to myself, "Wow, it's late for her to be out" ...only to find her two baby chicks she hatched. I am at wit's end with my birds and I didn't want to get anymore birds... but watching her with her babies I realized I didn't have the heart to take them away. So now I am trying to raise a mom and her two chicks. Here's my first problem. I put the mom and the chicks in the garage the first night because I knew raccoons would probably get her if I didn't move them. One of the chicks hopped into a mouse trap. I couldn't believe it. I should have known better. It caught the chick's leg and I quickly released it. Ok, I'll get to the point. Here are my questions: 1) The chick with the leg that is hurt seems to be doing OK. It doesn't use it's other leg but it hops around just fine. Is it possible the chicken will be ok? or will I eventually just have to cull her? Her leg doesn't look broken or anything but she won't put weight on it. 2) Is it safe to introduce the hen and her two chicks to my flock? I have them sealed up in the old coop/run now but I am not sure when I can introduce them to the other birds. My rooster dropped dead randomly the day they were born. No signs of illness and no trauma to his body. It was sad and I was dumbfounded. So these chicks are kind of the last remains of his bloodline. I am just hoping to raise them to adulthood. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
