There's still a couple eggs to hatch...but I snatched the chicks and brought them in. The broody was actually on a towel that was on shavings. In the brooder they're on a puppy pad. I placed a tiny amount of poultry powder on them and I can see the dead bugs on the pad. I really wanted the broody to raise these guys though.
