My chicks are dying! I had three hens that were sitting on eggs for awhile now, Last week I found an egg getting ready to hatch, went back in later and saw the chick had hatched and was tossed to the floor, dead. Thinking it was a fluke I was really surprised when this same hen did this to another chick the day after! We found a new home for the chicken...don't worry not over the rainbow bridge, but with a new chicken family! However, the other hens are being found to be just as guilty as she was. In the past four days I have had to pick up sweet little dead chicks from the coop and dispose of them. I even saw one hen pecking at her chick. I am wondering what is causing this and what I can do to keep this from happenening. It is breaking my heart! By the way, my chickens have raised chicks before, so I am not sure why this is occuring now. Thanks so much and sorry for the long message!
