Our hatch ended last night. The final baby (a mixed breed) was helped out of her shell about 6 pm, she was extremely sticky. I moved all the babies to the brooder except for her. For the rest of the night we checked on them to make sure they were doing ok, and they were. We had a pretty good hatch 4 of our bantam mixes, 5 of Bamachickens silkies, 3 of Bamachickens Orps (1 splash, 1 blue, and 1 mottled) and 3 large breed mixes. They were so adorable! I planned on taking a picture of them today when I moved the final baby to the brooder. This morning I go down to check on them and the brooder is on the floor. Little chick bodies surround it. I see my cat as she grabs one and starts to play with it. I search the reckage and find 2 little silkies burried in the pine chips, they are cold to the touch, but abrely breathing. I rush and put them in the incubator. We found all of the bodies except for 3. We are so upset! My 6 year old daughter found the body of her hens chick. It was awful! My children are talking about killing the cat....don't worry I won't let it happen. She is a good cat but she likes to climb on things and is ornery. My son has tears streaming down his face, and I am numb. I feel like maybe I willed this to happen in some way. We are in the process of a very unexpected adoption of a newborn. I was thinking last night that if I would have known we would have a new baby I wouldn't have set the eggs, but after seeing them in the brooder I was so happy. They were adorable! I left the brooder in the basement because of the baby. I didn't want the dust to bother him, so it wasn't in the kitchen like normal. I just had to tell you all, and I will keep you posted about the 2 little silkies. Thanks for listening.
