Hi all, I have 2 broody hens that I want to get chicks for. I've done some reading on the subject and my local farm has chicks 1-3 days old. 2 questions:
1. My nest boxes are quite high off the ground and the peeps will not be able to get there. I have some temporary nest boxes that I've used on the floor (before hubby built the higher ones). Should I put those on the ground for the hens and chicks?
2. Is it better to "insert" the chicks at night, or doesn't it matter?
Any other advise is appreciated! While we've had chickens for several years now, this is the first time I've tried chick "adoption."
