Ok i just placed an order for more baby chicks and here is why.... I had a broody serama hen sit on 3 cochin eggs, out of the 3 eggs 2 hatched. I put the first hatch under another broody hen who hatched out 10 seramas. The babies were only 2 days old at the time. I woke up the next morning to find the baby cochin dead (the hen had killed it). The serama hen still had one egg left to hatch so i left it under her rather than trying to put it in with the serama babies and having that hen kill this one as well. Now my dilema is i feel bad for the lone cochin baby under the broody by itself, I tested her by taking a few serama babies and setting them in with her to see if she would turn on them like the other hen did and she didn't, she took them right in with no problems. They wouldn't stop crying for their "real mama" so i put them back where they were. I was thinking i could order a few chicks from ideal to keep the lone cochin baby company. Too late to turn back now order is already placed. Do you think that the serama hen will accept the new little ones when they get here or am i running a risk of her turning on them because the lone cochin will be about a week old by the time i get the new ones? I ordered all banties.... 4 blrw, 4 ameraucanas, 2 red frizzled cochins, 2 blue quail belgian d anvers. Good lord am i in for a heck of a ride here lol!
