    My broody hen was attacked night before last, I think by racoons who somehow reached through the air vent.
    Her eggs were due to hatch today. Of the 11 she had, 8 were taken and of the remaining three one is a dud, one pipped and died and the other I think died a few days ago.
    I would hate for her to get nothing after all this. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Does anyone in the FINGERLAKES/ITHACA, NY AREA have any chicks that just hatched (like less than 24 hours old) or will be hatching in the next few days that I could buy?
    Or does anyone have eggs that are due to hatch in the next week that they would part with that I could rush home and put under her????
    I'm so devastated for her. She protected her remaining eggs with her life and got very scratched and bloody and I would hate her to have nothing for her efforts, nor do I want her to have to start again and sit there for 3 more weeks...help - ?
