OK I hatched 30 chicks (5 weeks ago) and all doing OK. Now for the first time I have new chicks (1 an hour ago) and one zipping now, with 5 more eggs under my hen. They are in the hen house with 28 other hens and one roo. Will the baby's be OK there or do I need to separate them. That is if the mother is a good mother with the baby's and the eggs. I prepared to remove the baby's to a boarder or the eggs to my incubator if need, but would really like to let mommy do it all. I know that it will be a staggered hatch up to 5 days or so. But again the question is will everyone else leave them alone or do I need to move mommy, baby's and eggs to a separate place. OOO by the way the nest is on the floor some what in the corner nearest to the door leading into the run.
