Please help! I only have a tiny flock of silkie chickens 3 girls 1 boy since july had them since they were five months and they live a very happy free range life with a massive chicken coop my children can get in! We went away for Christmas my friend has been coming in and feeding them and letting them in and out , I had noticed one of the hens wasn't out as much but we have only been back a few days and its cold and windy/stormy here and just thought she didn't like the weather (doh) This morning I woke up to the sound of cheeping and my son went out to feed them and said he could see two chicks and she was sitting on eggs. I never had any intention of having chicks and I don't know what to do?? I have put the other chickens outside the coop as I was worried about them upsetting her or standing on the chicks but what do I do now? Do I move her and the chicks to the shed? Do I leave her there and move the other chickens to the shed? When Can I go in to check on her properly without upsetting or stressing her? Do I need different food? Can I clean out the coop? I don't have a heat lamp or brooder or anything as I didn't want chicks ? Do I need to intervene? Now I have an 11 year old and a nine year old worrying about them as well and I don't want to do the wrong thing! PLEASE HELP!!!
