I have a friend who was having trouble hatching out eggs and/or keeping the little ones alive. He asked me if I could stick some eggs under my broody chickens. I now have 3 peachicks running around my growout pen with my other young chickens. Mama hen has been doing really well with them, protecting them from the cats and showing them food. My questions would be- Are they ok with the 24% chick starter? Am I supposed to be handling them? I can't even catch them! How long do you think I should hold on to them before my friend should take them back? My pen is just a large chainlink fenced in area with a rabbit hutch for them to go into at night. Do I need to worry about them getting too big and flying away? This has been a lot of fun for me to try out but I sure am nervous about taking care of other peoples elegant animals! Any thoughts would be appreciated!
