Mother Hen’s chick did not survive. When I went out this morning and was feeding the chickens she came out and joined them. I ran to look and the chick was dead amongst the clutch of eggs. Hard to say what happened-maybe it was squished in the eggs, maybe it was feeble or ill and couldn’t survive. I don’t have much hope for the rest of the eggs and there is a nasty rotten odor in there, so I’d like to just clean the whole thing out, but I’ll wait a few days.
