    I have a young cochin that went broody last month and hatched an egg on friday! I separated mom and chick from the rest of the flock, and put the nest on the floor in a shallow rattan box about 3 to 4 inches high.... there is food and water on the floor, but I'm not sure if the little one can get in and out of the nest to eat and drink? should I encourage it to? the mother is really vicious right now!

    thanks in advance
