This baby was about 3 days behind the first chick to hatch.
The mama hen pays a lot less attention to eggs after she has babies moving around.
We decided to help this one out a bit, so we’ll keep it warm indoors until tonight.
Then we’ll slip her back under the mama for long night of warmth and bonding.
Everything should be fine by the morning.
3 days doesn’t seem like long, but the other chick is already eating and scratching.
Stay tuned for updates on this little silkie mix.
