I have only hatched out shipped eggs, so the hatch rate is very low. The babies lived in my living room by our space heater. I don't have a grow out pen, so my two babies went right into the big coop at 4 weeks old. I have several hiding areas for them and I try to give them their own bowl of food. I discovered today that in my mix of chickens I have a cream legbar hen. Do any of you raise these? I will be looking for a male in the spring, or eggs to hatch out. I am super excited to make this discovery...I always thought she was a mutt!
