today got 8 Milles Fleur bantam chicks from My Pet Chicken. All seemed healthy, drank lots of water and ate. Tonight one seems ill. eyes closed, weak. She is in my hand now. I have 4 broody hens (not bantams but we have had hens hatch out and raise ducks and bantams) in the barn. Should I put this chick under a hen or put her back in the brooder tonight? Any ideas, please.
