I have a broody hen, she has 10 chicks that hatched on the 29th.... She has been great with them...........They have been free ranging yesterday and today..... The flock is great with them.... both roosters are great with them as well, no problem with the rest of the flock........ It has truly been a blessing....... Today she was great, the only thing I am concerned about is that she tried to feed them from the layers food. I have chick starter for them I have it in the crate and when she is out and about foraging I put the starter in front of them. They eat it then she makes them forage. Will they get enough of their food or should I keep them crated for a few day. Another question is......I live in North FL and it it going to be in the 20's on Tuesday Should I keep them crated with the heat on. The highs will be 50. I also have to go back to work..... I don't want to take any chances of losing my babies. Thank you for any input or advice.
