    Hi I had a broody chicken hatch a couple of chicks. The only problem is that they are up 3 feet in a box. Should i put them on the ground or leave them there. The box is big enough to fit 2 chickens in it, that is how big it is. Also should i seperate them?

    If the box is 3 feet off the ground then the chicks could fall out and get chilled, so you should put them near the ground where the baby chicks can come in and out. Are they in a chicken coop with other chickens?
