Not at all. The mother will do all the work. All you have to do is provide a safe shelter for mama and chicks, and make sure they have plenty of food/water at appropriate chick levels so they can eat and drink. I always have mama on ground level so the chicks don't have to navigate any ramps or heights.I want to do a breeding project, and I'd like to hatch the eggs with a broody. Is there any special care you have to give chicks if they're hatched outside? Do you have to assist in their drying-off or anything like that?
