    Ok, I have a broody hen doing a fantastic job sitting for 1 week so far. If/when she hatches out some chicks what do I need to do?
    Do I take them to a rubbermade and raise them a few weeks? Or will she do all the mothering?
    I guess I need a little chick water feeder and some smaller chick crumbles too.

    This was my first time hatching with a broody as well. Ruby hatched 4 eggs on Easter Sunday, she has been doing a fantastic job. Your mama will teach them everything. But definitely get them some chick starter and water. Good luck
