One of my hens went broody for the first time and since then she has been perfect on her clutch of 13 eggs, which I gave her almost exactly 21 days ago to the hour. Now, just as I'm about to go to bed, they're hatching! She is outside in her own pen and I can't see anything but I can hear all the "tap tap tap tap, scratch scratch" and the occasional muffled "cheep!" I am hoping nothing major happens until in the morning. Since it is her first time being broody, I don't know if she's going to know what to do with the chicks once they are no longer in their eggs. There is nothing I can do but wait. Think she'll at least sit tight through the night? Is it very common for a hen that goes broody to set very well on her eggs but not know how to care for the chicks? At what point will I actually be able to see what is going on under there? Will she move around or get up once some of the chicks have hatched, or do they just fluff up right underneath her? Cross your fingers for my good first hatch.
