Smartypants has been faithfully sitting on 11 eggs-our first time hatching chicks. Yesterday afternoon the babies started hatching and we got a sneak preview of two of them. They were out from underneath her investigating. My question: how long before we can sneak a peek as to how many children Smartpants has? Our Daughter was up at 6:30am wanting to head to the coop to do a head count. I told her not until I ask the experts at BYC Also, should we move her to another area after the chicks are hatched? She is in a pen with 4 other hens and a roo. One of the hens is our original hen and she rules the roost. During the incubation time, there has been many times that PeeWee has attacked Smartypants over the nest as PeeWee is my egg-breaking hen.(only reason we keep her is she was our Daughters first chick from the Easter Bunny). Should we move them once everyone is hatched?
