Hi We gave my broody RIR 3 fertile eggs to sit on- 2 banty and 1 RIR 21 days ago. Well one banty has hatched (oh my, so cute !!). I have her in a cardboard box IN the coop and its lined with her oat hay nest that I moved into the box 3 days ago (thats what they use to lay their eggs in and seem to love it) and I put a chick waterer in there and some crumbles for the hen. The other banty egg is starting to hatch now. She seems to be a good mom and the baby is tucked under her. She lets me peek now and then. I think the RIR egg is a dud (we candled at day 16) So, I know nature takes its course and I think I want to just let her be with her babies in the box in the hen house- its warm, draft free and she has privacy and food and water. But when I read on line I see all these issues like "curled feet" and you have to put pipe cleaners on the babys toes !! Or that the baby could suffocate or the unhatched eggs that didnt develop could explode so they need to be removed... yadda yadda yadda I have 3 other RIR that putter around the yard and sit in the coop at night on a perch. The mom is in the hen house in her box safe from them interfering. So, so far so good....... Tell me What do I need to do to make sure these chicks do dandy? Just leave the set up as is? Am I doing everything right? I know that there are many factors that can cause chicks to die but I want to ensure the best care for them so they survive (barring any genetic issues of course) ANy input is GREATLY appreciated Thanks so much for reading !!! IM so excited Rene'
