Hi everybody, I'm new to the site and am looking for some advice. I have had 3 chickens for just over a year and one recently went broody. She had six eggs that I got from a friend with a roo, but only one hatched. I bought a few day old chicks from the local farm so as to give her a few extra babies ( and to be honest to share some of the burden of being so 'loved' by my very excited children) Jenna (mum) has sat on them all happily, but has made no move to take them out of the nest. I took away her dud eggs, do I need to encourage her out? The chick were hatched is 4 days old now so I really think it will need something to eat and drink soon! Many thanks!
