I have 5 chicks hatching in the incubator--3 are hatched, 2 pipped. This is my first hatch and I'm so excited!!! Around the time I set the eggs in the incubator, I had a hen go broody. I would like to give her 2 of the chicks to take care of, so I'm planning on sneaking them under her tonight. I want to leave them all in the coop. Can I leave them in the box that my broody has been sitting in, or should I move them into something a little more separate from the regular boxes? I want the hen to do as she pleases--taking care of the chicks and making the decision to take them out to free range with the flock when the time is right. I have a large dog crate I could put her in today, where I could also put chick starter and water for the little ones, but I would like to leave it open. Would the other hens and rooster go in with them and eat the chick food? Or, should I just feed everybody the chick starter and not have a separate feeder? Thanks in advance for any advice, and feel free to address anything I haven't thought of!
