My barred rock hen is setting on several eggs right now and i should have some babies by the end of the month. These are our first babies and I have some questions.
After they hatch, will she care for them?
Would it be best to create a place in the coop for them (there's plenty of room to create a section just for them) or is it better to bring them in the house in a box?

Momma hen should take care of them just fine after they hatch. Just make sure they have a chick-sized waterer and feeder. I prefer to section of a part of my coop for my broodies. It's much less smelly and messy than keeping them in the house.
