After four years of having chickens and trying to breed (I was never able to get one to set) I finally have an old brahma on the nest. I'm expecting hatch day this week. My hen house sits about 3 feet off the ground and is totally fenced in. They use a narrow ramp which is a little steep. My question is when my widdies as they are referred to in sw VA hatch, should I put a small house ground leveland will mamma use it. I'm afraid the widdies won't be able to get up the ramp if they were to jump or fall out. I really wasn't prepared or planning her to actually go broody. Any suggestions or should I just take them when they hatch an hand raise which I really don't want to do.
