    Hi All,

    I posted yesterday that I have a few new peepers that hatched.The mother is still sitting on them,but I am worried about whether I should feed them now or if she does that?
    I am new to the chicken scene,cause I was given my first two silkies,but they are my pets and I love them.I want to care for them as I do my 4 cats,which by the way interact with the chickens,please may I have some suggestions,cause I am getting worried that they may starve if she doesn't feed them like the wild birds do.I am so ignorant about this.....

    She will pobably bring them to the food. I never used a broody to hatch so I cant answer this. Keep an eye on them and see what happens.

    I hope all goes well
