This is a spinoff from my post below... I'm totally stumped on what to do with my two baby chicks that have recently hatched (and surprised us). Right now mama hen is sharing a nest box with another hen. I'm worried that the babies will get suffocated. I was going to split the eggs and move the mom (my best guess which is the mom) w/ the 2 babies and some of the eggs into a separate spot in the coop. However, I have read that this might stop her broodiness? What is the best way to handle it?! Ugh.. going crazy not knowing what to do I've also read that I could bring the babies in the house until she stops setting, and then bring the babies back out to her? That would probably be the best thing to do?? Any suggestions, please? Also, it's night-time now. DH & I were thinking about going out there tonight (now) and moving her..but now I'm thinking of bringing them in? Not even sure how old they are. They are dry and tiny, but I'm sure they will need food soon..GRR... TIA!
