Chick Death!

Hi All, I am very sorry to report that the chick that hatched seems to have died. We await a second hatch any day and time is running out at the egg was laid 41 days ago! It is important to recognize just how delicate young birds are following hatching. With the inability to thermoregulate cool, wet weather can be the critical problem for survival at an early age. That is just what this chick faced as Maine has experienced about ten days of rain! Have a wonderful day and lets hope the second egg hatches!
All the Best,
