My most anticipated silkie buff orpington chicks have hatched (I DID IT!!!!!! YES!!!!) they are in a dog crate, pretty good size, with shavings and a hay nest. layer pellets for Virgil (Mother) and water. If i leave her to the chicks will she take care of them, with the exception of me providing chick feed? do i need to put them under a heat lamp? that wouldn't be much trouble because of the chicks i got a week ago from my pet chicken. Is it natural for Virgil to sill sit on the chicks for warmth? will the chicks get up and walk around? i will try to post pics later, but right now i need advice, and remember, Shaving floor, hay nest, large dog crate. Please post anything you feel will be helpful, don't hesitate please.
