What are these? I've never seen them before. Are they difficult to put on and do they stay on? Have they helped? [/ The curtains are a great idea! I am so stealing it. Thank you. Yes wonderful idea, consider this stolen x2! Ok, I'm new to chickens, less than a year, so please forgive me for my curiosity. But how many chicks do you hatch each year, and what do you do with them? It just seems like you always have chicks hatching. Do you keep some, sell some? Do you find it hard to sell them? Do you hatch during the winter months? See curious, sorry! Very nice setup. I'm sure she is comfy. I know that when I moved my broody, she seemed more content, she didn't have to protect the nest. If I had waited for her to go out to eat etc, I'd still be waiting. She didn't move for 2 days. So I started taking her off the nest 1 a day. Then we had that 90+ weather, I took her off 2-3 a day and made sure she ate and drank each time. I pretty much hand fed her some days. Although she always had food and water in her area, she never touched it.
