Day 20 now and we can hear the chicks "talking" to us from within the eggs and one was even tapping. I guess that means they will come out today? Does anyone know? What has everyone done with new baby chicks in with adults? How do you keep the laying hens from the baby food? Will they be okay with everyone else (4 other hens, their "mum', no rooster) once their "mum" is with them? Any other tips? I've attached a pic of little T sitting on her eggs. The first chick has hatched. It's a little black one and it was still half in the egg. I'll take some pics as soon as the chicks start moving around!!
