Hi All, I've incubated and hatched chicks before but I've never had one hatch in my flock. Ive been vacationing and had a care taker caring for my animals. I got a call this morning that we have a chick. Apparently there are no other eggs so it'll just be this one. The momma chicken is staying with her and all seems fine that way. This is this hen's first hatch. My question is, do I need to separate her and the chick from the rest of the flock? I have ten hens including her and two roosters (one grown - presumably the daddy lol - and one juvenile). The others are out right now and she's locked in the coop but the others will come in to roost this evening. Any other general advice is appreciated as well. I'm used to controlling everything in a brooder so this more hands off approach is new to me. I need to try to get instructions to my care taker before the others come back to roost tonight. Thanks so much!
