why did baby chick die?
My hen recently sat and hatched 4 baby chicks on the 7th and 8th of Nov. Everyone was doing fine. They are confined to their own pen w/mama - they were all there last night - this morning went out and 1 was missing, found it underneath straw. Did baby get caught or did mama do something? (it was one of the big babies). she is a first time mom, and doing a great job teaching babies all!
any thoughts on this?
*****Has anyone heard from Velvet - she's in California? with fires out there -just concerned.*****
