    Did they hatch under a hen or in an incubator?

    Ok, I'm not sure I haven't done this before, but I was planning on doing this this time around and changed my mind. What I was told to do is slide the hatched babies under the broody hen at night. Watch her to make sure she will accept them. If you have "dummy" eggs under her, you can remove some of those eggs and replace them with the baby chicks at night.
