when it’s the best time a day to put baby chicks under the broody hen?
I do it at night, with as little light and commotion possible. Do you have the chicks already? How old are they? How long has the hen been broody?
Hen broody almost 21 days
Chicks 3 day old
I just did this last night. Piece of cake! I first moved the sleepy chicks into a little Tupperware that I had lined with a napkin and put glove warmers underneath. I wanted them to be cozy so they didn’t peep too much when I swapped them out with the eggs. There was just a little peeping and commotion, but not bad. Broody is a happy mama this morning.
