    So almost a month ago one of our only laying hens went broody! our first broody <3 i was giving up hope on the egg (i didn't have a good candler) and all i was seeing was a giant air bubble. this morning we went out to feed every one and we go to the broody and there's a baby! sooooooooo cute!!!! ....i love all my chickens but hatching them out is WAY cuter.....but now i have questions what do i feed it?
    will it drink water? and were should i put them? :] ty

    You can separate it from the mother if you like, if not let momma take care of it. She will show it where to eat and drink, if she doesnt then take it away from her and make sure its getting food and water. Momma chickens have been raising babies for a while now and momma usually knows best
