    if your worried take the chick and put it in the brooder. You'll know in a few minutes whether she gets back on the eggs. If she don't put em in the incubator

    If It were me I'd take the chick I highly doubt she'll abandon the nest but I'm not telling u to do that for the record just in case

    I don't think coyotes will be on the protected list anytime soon.
    last I heard, you could get up to $65 a pelt
    and, I understand the coydogs are more aggressive and less afraid of humans,

    night-time is best(perfecto) for removing chicks from under hen (out of sight&sound - out of mind&bother) .... daytime removal can produce problems ..... but there are exceptions and no two hens react the same . If you have removed eggs or a chick from her then you already know . Good Luck.

    Her other eggs haven't hatched yet. But I think that chick was born yesterday. Should I wait or candle?
