    Went out to check on the Serama Momma and her two babes. At some point last night, either she or her Rooster laid on the yellow baby and suffocated it. I am so upset right now. Sitting here crying. [​IMG] RIP little one

    OH, so sorry to hear that. I have a sad chick story too.....I hatched these really cute little Polish bantams last weekend. Two hatched the first day, then two after that. I left one chick in the incubator four about four hours extra because it wasn't getting around very well and seemed weak.

    After it was dry and fluffed up, I put it in the brooder. I went back to check and it was doing much better.....I went back again and it had gotten into the chick waterer and drowned. These chicks really weren't that little, and it didn't even occur to me that this could happen. I just felt awful. Never lost a chick this way before.....

    Hugs to you......I need a hug too! [​IMG]
