    i placed some button quail eggs under a belgian bearded d'uccle hen any concerns on this she likes those little eggs suprised she hasnt broken any of them she cares for her eggs good but do u think the chicks r to fragile to keep with her or maybe she wont want them cuz of their tinyness any thoughts on this would be awsome also i dont have a bator so its her or nothing i could also take the chicks out once they hatch

    they require a different food than chicken chicks. I would take them and place them in a brooder after they hatch, if they do.
