    Oh my gosh I am now blessed with the title of the mama of 4 beautiful balls of fluffy delight!!
    So cute and WOW! I only just saw, they're still under the hen and she won't let me see, but I saw a foot, a wing and can make out that there are 4!! I don't know when they hatched but have found a few empty shells....!
    What do I do?!

    Oh how fun! Mama should take pretty good care of them, just sit back and enjoy. I guess if it looks like others are bothering her and the babies, you can always put her in a separate area for their safety. But like I said, mom will take care of them. :)

    Hi and welcome to BYC and congrats on your new chicks. As long as momma and chicks are on ground level in the coop (assuming thats where they were hatched) and they have access to water and starter feed momma will do all the work and make all the right decisions. Enjoy it - theres nothing nicer than seeing momma and chicks running around the place!

    Best wishes

    Mamas usually know best - if you have food and water available, mom will lead them to it.
