I have two hens setting eggs now and I am wondering what to do once they hatch. I live in North Texas so once they hatch teh weather will be warm enough for them outside I would think. Can I just put food and water for them in with the hen or should I remove the poults? Any help would be approeciated. I have a few chicken eggs under one of the hens because I was told they would help the poults learn to eat and drink. I tried to add some eggs last night and the hens were not too happy. they seem to be in full on protective mode now.
