So she's taken to the chicks just fine- I introduced them last night and she took them right away. I checked on them when they got up this morning and several times since and she's sitting on them and pecking anyone who comes near. BUT she hasn't gotten up yet and the chicks haven't come out from under her (that I've seen). It's really cold out- should I worry that she'll keep them under her for warmth and starve them/dehydrate them to death? Am I worrying too much? They aren't freshly hatched chicks- they were four days old, so they can't go 24 hours before she lets them out to eat/drink (I read that once they eat for the first time it starts their metabolism up and they can't do that) and since it was 7:30 when I stuck them under last night they haven't had a drink since then or eatten since before then. And I'm kind of waiting for her to let them out from under her and then let them back in before I move them to the safer isolation pen. Once a broody takes some chicks does she always do a good job? Reassurance (or not) would be helpful!
