My chicken is brooding, anything to worry about? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 

There's no need to candel anymore.  I went out to mark the eggs to see if there being turned and 2 eggs were broken.  One was a half formed chicken with the other half still yoke stuff.  The other looked like frozen scrambled eggs from the egg.  I then heard a peeping noise and grabed an egg, held it up to my ear and hear a peep.  I don't know what to do.  I know i need to get food and protect the brooding space with stuff but i don't really know what to do after that.  Also I rotated the eggs so that the form correctly.  I'm so nervous it's like 6:00pm and I know there's a living chick under one of my hens. Please reply with help and advise.:jumpy:ep

Just leave it under your hen and she'll take care of the hatching smile.png Make sure the area she has the chicks in is predator proof and pick up some chick starter feed. Congrats!

You don't need to keep them indoors. Momma hen will keep the chicks warm. She will also show them what to eat and drink. And chicks left raised with a broody hen integrate into the flock much easier, since momma is around to protect them.

Put it back outside with its mother. Like Junebuggena said you do not need to bring it inside. It's peeping because it is not with its mother nor does it have any other chicks to keep it company, and it will continue to do that until the problem is fixed - either it goes back to its mother or you get more chicks to keep it company.
