Hi to everyone! I have gathered tips from everyone over the last 2 years, getting tips on types of coops, how to build, and caring for chickens. Over the last 2 years, we have collected eggs from our 2 hens as when we got them we considered ourselves very lucky! About 3 1/2-4weeks ago, my husband decided to leave 4 eggs in with one of our hens as she was "acting " very "motherly".Well, today we had 1 chick that had hatched( I thought I would cry ! ),and she was still very protective over the other 3 eggs. Our question is: should we leave the babies in her with her or remove them? What is the absolute best thing to do? Thank you to anyone who gives me pointers, I truly appreciate it! God Bless!!!
