We had a chicken go broody so we got ten eggs from a local chicken guy that has roosters and let her do her thing. We are down to three eggs two right beside each other and the third is little (6 -8 inches from the others) Well today she hatched her first chick... I kicked her out of the nesting box to get footage of it for my kindergartner that called me at the firehouse last night ecstatic that she heard a chick "peeping" in the egg. Had I known this egg was gonna hatch I would have kept her home from school today to learn more than she could've there. Anyway my question is once the chick was out "big momma" was allowed back in the box and she promptly sat down on the other two eggs and the baby chick... is this ok? Is it likely the egg that is separated from the other two is gonna be viable? There have been a couple of other birds in that box with big momma trying to be broody too. The other chickens are now isolated in the run away from big momma and her chick.... but we can't keep it like this... so now where do we put the chick(s)?Does big momma go with them once she is done hatching them? Anything else you can offer would be great. We have a dog house that is insulated and such that we can put the chicks in. These are our first home hatched chicks so we have no idea what to do, we usually get them a few days old from rural king.
