    Dinah's egg just hatched today!!!! The baby is sooo cute... I'm so amazed by the miracle of life!!!! She has been in a zen state inside a box in the garage for 3 weeks. I used to visit her every morning just getting close enough to refill the water and the feeder but today she won't even allow me to do that.
    what's going to happen now? Would she take the baby back to the coops with her? Should I keep feeding them separately? Now she is pooping in the box too. I guess she doesn't want to leave the baby alone, but I'm thinking this might not be good for the health of the little one... i need advices!!!
