Hello to the Backyard Chicken Community!
Please know that I am aware that this question has been raised up on multiple accusations. However, I feel more at ease when I'm given a direct response ^^
Anywho, my Orpington Chicken (Miss Sassy) has decided that she'd like to become a mother and, although I do have prior experience in regards to baby chicks, I've completely forgotten:
- What is the best method with it comes to placing the eggs under the hen (also should I remove her from the flock prior to the placement)
- And how long/old should the chicks be before taking them outside/ introducing them to the flock
Anyway, please let me know and thank you so much to the people who take the time to answer my question ^^
