    I left some eggs and 3 of my hens sat and sat and then this morning I heard peeping and saw an adorable fluff ball under Bella's wings. I took some chick starter and a shallow water bowl. Mama started eating and drinking and chickie was exploring. Is this right or should I not do anything and let nature take it's course? Or should i bring it inside and put in in my brooder box?

    Any help is great.
