    I'm obviously very new to this, but I would appreciate any advise.....
    Once the chicks hatch that the momma is sitting on, do I need to have the rooster out of the area? Will he kill the chicks?
    We are very excited [​IMG] as the day is approaching soon!
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    If she is a good momma, she will protect her brood, plus, they can run pretty fast even as little fluff-balls.

    Separating them is not an absolute necessity the way it is with rodents.
