Well sometime over the stormy night a varmint of some kind got a Broody Silky/Duccle mix that had snuck off to try to hatch a clutch of mixxed eggs. She had found a small hole torn in the harware cloth when the Coop/Tractor was pulled out of the way when my big coop was delivered. Anyway I knew it wasn't safe and probably should have tried to relocate her to the coop. But I was afraid she would abandon the whole nest. So I let her stay. I don't know what prompted the Varmint to go in there whether the hatchlings were peeping or it was just seeking shelter from the storm. But I can see where she fought and where it finished her. She must have fought well as the three hatchling were still there. They were so cold i couldn't beleive they were still living. I got em inside and under a heat lamp. I did try briefly to give em to a hen sitting eggs. But she wanted nothing to do with em. Suprising to me once they warmed up all three have perked up. I went back for a better examination and found a piped egg. I put it to my ear and could hear the gravely rustling of breaking and movement. I got it in and warmed up and it is peeping now I don't want to rush in but I'm afraid since I am without incubator that I"m going to have to try to help it. I have it in brooder warmed up and will help it if it hasn't hatched by morning. I have a pic of them but it is taking forever to get it up loaded so I'll post it in a minute.
