Oh my gosh I am now blessed with the title of the mama of 4 beautiful balls of fluffy delight!!
So cute and WOW! I only just saw, they're still under the hen and she won't let me see, but I saw a foot, a wing and can make out that there are 4!! I don't know when they hatched but have found a few empty shells....!
What do I do?!

  Oh how fun!  Mama should take pretty good care of them, just sit back and enjoy.   I guess if it looks like others are bothering her and the babies, you can always put her in a separate area for their safety.  But like I said, mom will take care of them.   :)

Wonderful family, very understanding husband when it comes to chickens, dogs, birds, one big Golden Retriever, and thankful to the Lord for all!

Hi and welcome to BYC and congrats on your new chicks. As long as momma and chicks are on ground level in the coop (assuming thats where they were hatched) and they have access to water and starter feed momma will do all the work and make all the right decisions. Enjoy it - theres nothing nicer than seeing momma and chicks running around the place!

 

Best wishes

Mamas usually know best  - if you have food and water available,  mom  will lead them to it.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
