    Hello! I have a Muscovy mama successfully hatch four ducklings and one guinea keet inside my chicken coop this morning. I have decided that for safety reasons (predators), I have to move the babies to my brooder. When should I do this? The just hatched this morning and are still a bit damp, I've kicked the chickens out of the coop so I don't have to worry about them disturbing the nest, but of course it's raining and of course they need back in tonight. Do I need to wait till the chicks are dry?
