I should have kept my "mouth" shut yesterday.
Last night, Ifound the chick's body--minus it's head.
Stupid me. I jinxed it.
I did suggest to Kev that maybe he should build me a brood house for "next" time. He gave me the look and just suggested that "next" time, I seperate the chick(s) from the hen and raise them like we do store bought chicks.
I'm gonna work on my plan, and work towards a brood house--or brood tractor. Maybe then...I can raise a chick.
