My female pekin is on the nest continuously now for last the last few days. I feed her peas in the morning and afternoon. put bowl of water in the coop also. My question is what happens when she hatches? I do not have them penned for now but is it wise to leave the coop open. So far we haven't had any predators except neighbors cats and dogs run them off. Do I have to feed them as I did with momma when she arrived by mail or do I separate her from them.. I can close up the pen any time. She has a large pond to teach them to swim etc. I just want to be ready for these guys when they arrive. Appreciate all the help I can get.
