we have two hens sitting on 2 nests (1rst timers, like us). One hen's chicks are hatching. We have 2 chicks but neither of the hens are getting off the nest. So the chicks are not eating. The hens are viscous and won't let us near the chicks to feed or water them. I am wondering if we should move them to a brooder (the chicks) so they survive. We already had one chick die that we didn't realize had hatched looked like it was 3 or 4 days old. Must have starved. I have buried a bird (quail, turkey baby, chicken, and kitten!) every day this last week and I need it to stop. I want these chicks to live. So happy the forum is back up!!!!
