I am new to this so bear with me . My hen has 5 little chicks under her, a few more hatch each day, out of 11. She is in a nesting box, in a large hen house with adjoining run. I am wondering HOW and when she's gonna get herself and babies down to eat, drink, and then where does she go? does she sleep on the floor with them? We have a RIR that REALLY picks on the buff momma... and I am nervous about that as she ventures out of her box. What if ONE baby falls out of the box? Thanks for answering, I know time will give me these answers, but if there are ideas that will make these things go smoother, I would love to know them! Should I build little steps? LOL.
