So after 2 failed attempts using an incubator, we finally hatched some wonderful little fluffballs under our Cochin Bantam.
Nature is a lot more reliable than technology and so much better when you hear the chirping under the hen who is clucking away.
Now for the hard part of rearing the little fluffballs, I'm leaving them with the broody, should I just provide food and water and keep a hands off approach?
How long do they need with Mother Hen before she can be integrated back with the flock?

Congrats..I put Momma and Chicks back into the Flock when they are about 5 days old or if weather is cold I wait till 10 days old..No one messes with Momma and her Chicks..Yes, I provide feed and water with a hands off approach.
Best wishes...
