We are pretty new to chickens, weve had our silver duckwing bantums for about 6 months and our hen has been sitting on her first hatch and today we saw the first pip! So exciting! Later in the day we looked again and the egg that had pipped has started unzipping, its face is exposed and theres an opening about the size of a dime. The little fella isnt moving or responding at all now tho. I know its an exhausive process for the little guys tho and they need breaks but i was just concerned being a new chicken dad that something may have gappened and it didnt make it. Its still sitting minda under the hen, but shes on 11-12 eggs so its kinda out from inder her a bit too. So my first question is, is the baby ok? How long should i wait to see more progress? Second, our hen is sittiing in her nesting box. Should we take the babies and out in a brooder? Is it ok to leave them in the coop with mom and roos? Should we leave with mom and block the roos out of the coop and make them a temp home in the run? Please all advice is greatly appreciated. We ADORE our babies and want the little ones to be as happy and health as possible. We have peafowl also and our peahen is an excellent mamma. Everything was so easy with her and luckily the dad didnt bother the babies at all. Just not sure if chickens will be the same. Thanks again!
