    [​IMG] Now what happens, does the mother take care of the chick, or am I suppose to provide seperate food and water for the baby and the mom....
    I'm so excited, and its so cute.

    Thank you, I wasn't sure if they can stay in the coop with the rest of hens. I'm sure
    she will do a good job...

    Are there any other broody hens in the copp? If so be careful! I just had a hen hatch her first chick today too. I went out to check on them about an hour later and the other broodies somehow killed it. I really hope your does well. It's fun to find a new baby, isn't it?
