Hello. I absolutly love my chickens. I have 9 hens and 2 roosters. In the chicken house I have 5 coops and the hens always pick the same 2 to lay their eggs. For the first time I have a hen sitting on her eggs (4 days now) and I don't know what to do. What do I do after they hatch? Do I move her and the chicks to their own place to be safe from a snake or the other hens? Does she ever get up to eat or drink? Any advice would help...thanks!
