We are excited as our broody cochin hatched some eggs. Everyone is outside and she is in a nursery coop (smaller coop separate from the other big hen coop).
I put out the starter chick crumbles and chick waterer - but they are only a day old if that.
So, is there anything else I need to be aware of?
She still has unhatched eggs under her as well - and I don't know if they will hatch or not....but will she take the babies out of the coop for a walk during the day to eat, etc... after a certain point or will she stay on the eggs and not take care of the babies?
