Pretty exciting stuff. DH and I had a date candling the eggs! Pretty fun, and better than watching a movie etc and much cheaper! LOL ! We have 6 eggs looking good (under a tiny bantie) and she is doing a great job! So sweet too, she grumbles a little when we lift her off the nest but never tries to peck us. We are going to leave her with the chicks for a few weeks at least. Do you think we need to set up a brooder area or will they be fine with Momma to keep them warm etc. Can I leave pine shavings down for them all or do I still need to do the paper towels over the litter initially. I am assuming that momma will teach them where the food is and water etc. Am I right?
