To summarize: I had a hen that went broody, we skipped a day collecting eggs and she claimed the pile, as all my hens lay in the same box even though I have 10 boxes. The brainchild chicken got up to get food and water and came back to the nest and sat on a new pile and abandoned the ones about to hatch. I moved her but I was not hopeful because they were pretty cool when I found her. Fast forward to yesterday and 4 have hatched, there could be more today, I didn't want to disturb her much in case it caused her to do something else stupid. I have never had a chicken raise chicks, I always buy mine at a day old and use a brooder. I have ordered chicks that will be coming soon though so I plan to let her raise these herself. A few questions though. 1.) The are in a nesting box that is hanging on the side of the wall about 3 feet high. How do I need to get them on the ground? 2.) I plan on adding a wire cage that has wire spaced far enough that babies can go in and out to keep the chick feed and water in there. My chicken waterers are too tall for chicks. Should I lock the hen up in there with them a day or two and then let them out so they learn where they get food or should I do it differently? 3.) How long should I get the other eggs to hatch before I toss them?
