We have our first ever broody hens. We are in NH where it’s getting down in the 20’s and 30’s at night, and even the teens occasionally so far..The broody hens, are 2 of our buff Orpingtons. This morning one chick hated, and was found in the run with mom. We put her and the baby back in with the other eggs, and she is still staying there. For about 10 minutes we weren’t sure which was the mom, because my very excited granddaughter who found the baby, grabbed it and ran in the house to show us. We have 6 buffs who all look alike, so I had to find the one with feathers missing off her belly, which I did and it was her, but in the mean time put the new chick under the other broody momma, who took her happily under her. The actual momma of the new chick hatched the chick in the nesting box, so I’m thinking tonight I will move them to a brooder. This is a first for us. I’m trying to read all I can, but not sure if I’m doing it right. I tried to give the chick water, but it didn’t drink, I’m going to go buy chick starter now. If the other hen hatched out chicks can I keep both moms together? Any advice would be so appreciated!
