In the Brooder
- Jul 5, 2007
My polish cross has been sitting on five Cochin laid eggs. I wasn't very optimistic they would hatch but lo and behold two baby chicks tumbled out from under her this afternoon! I moved her the unmatched eggs and the babies into a crate for now. Should I keep her separate from the other chickens?? I want her to raise the babies but I'm fearful my other chickens will hurt the babies. Will she continue to set the other eggs while she has these two already?? Should I maybe put her and the unhatched eggs back to the coop and keep the babies inside? Perfect scenario is she raises them with the flock but I dontwant to lose them! What do I do!!!! Lol Iv never hatched babies before!
