I'm not understanding...are you wanting to know how to take care the chicks after they hatch? The mother hen *should* do fine without assistance...

Let the mommy handle raising them, they do a much better job plus she will protect them when needed. If you are thinking of taken them away from her then your gonna need a heating lamp for warm and some chicken starter. You'll probably have a very upset mommy as well...
