Just put chicks under first time broody


Aug 29, 2021
it is dusk but not dark, so I expected some sort of reaction, but got nothing. No response at all. Is this good or bad? What should I look for? I am keeping my other hens in a different coop tonight since this mom is low hen on the totem pole.
She has been broody for 19 days. The chicks are two days old. I checked on her and one popped its head out and she pecked it hard. She let me push it back under her and settled down again. is there anything I can do but wait and see. She was so determined to brood, that I was hoping this would be easy. However, she is only a year old and this is her first brood.
