    In the middle of the night some how we lost the chick that looked like a silky. Don’t know if it was a large mouse or what. I have momma and her other chick sleeping in my spare bedroom until we can figure out what happened. I feel so bad for her

    I feel bad that only two chicks hatched and now one is gone. So I’m paranoid and over protective of the last chick lol. But it’s in the 30s tonight so I think momma and baby might enjoy being inside

    Oh so sorry you lost one! We have always had problems with snakes getting in our chick boxes at night. We even had a snake kill a full grown rabbit one time! Long story short, we live in Texas and rat snakes are vicious here.
    Anyway I hope you find out what happened to the little dragon chick! So sad!

    We have mice here too. All newborns and moms sleep inside at night till they are at least a month old and big enough to run away by themselves.
    I am so sorry you lost one chicky. Good luck with the other one.
