    I have a hen who has laid 6 eggs. So far all hatched chicks have died within a few hours. Mum is quite an aggressive bird, but I can’t see physical damage on them. Aviary is healthy, all my birds in good health, given top quality food and supplements, hygiene scrupulous. Here is a picture of last dead chick. Any advice would be gratefully received. Many Thanks. 2B4FFF8F-A642-4418-9602-C34EA3D10CAA.jpeg 061F69B7-43CA-49D8-A6CB-6B4BB45393DA.jpeg 2B4FFF8F-A642-4418-9602-C34EA3D10CAA.jpeg 061F69B7-43CA-49D8-A6CB-6B4BB45393DA.jpeg

    The crop looks empty, which means Mum isn't feeding her chicks. How old are they when they die?
