    Thanks guys [​IMG] She was a barred Cochin bantam. I have three others but they are all scared of me. Chickie would come up to my hand and follow it around.

    Some pics of Chickie before she died, she was smaller and didn't have as many feathers coming in. :(

    I wonder why she wasn't eating, are the rest of the chicks doing okay?

    Come to think of it, one of my Fayoumis went a couple weeks without growing because she wasn't eating properly. [​IMG] We had to mix up yogurt, feed, water, and Nutri-drench "soup" to feed to her via dropper just to keep her alive. She's the first chick we've ever had that went through that, and I have no idea what the source was.

    Yes the rest of the chicks are fluffy balls of energy. Last year we had a chick that wasn't eating so we force fed her, eventually she learned how and is alive today.

    Dot thinks she want to go broody again but I kicked her off the nest because she is inconsistent and I don't think she would be committed enough. And I think the chicks are old enough they would be afraid of her.
