    Hello, my chicks are about to hatch:D and I am wondering whether to leave mom and the chicks with my other 7 hens or should i shut the door to the nest box she's setting in like a day or two before they hatch?????? Any other advice would help. I'm new at this.

    Sorry no one saw this post, but I think I have read that people do it both ways. I would not move her if the eggs haven't hatched though.
