    How long is it normal for moma to keep the chicks in the nest?

    They hatched friday and i put them in a box on the floor and put chick waterer and feeded right outside box.

    Should I do anything yet?

    Can they get out of the box to get to the food? If so,I think you did everything right.

    I was worried over nothing!

    I just went out to check on them, and mama has the chicks outside in the run. It's a little windy, but the sun is shining and she has them next to the coop with her.

    Hopefully mama will take good care of her chickies.
