2 chicks hatched today...I thought I'd take them from her to put in a brooder, so they'd get used to being handled by people, but is there any real benefit, or should I just rig up something so she can raise them in the coop? The logistics of that seem a little harder (for me) but easier on them...do I keep them from the rest of the flock all the time? Or will she take care of them, thus they are immediately introduced to them so no intro issues weeks from now? I thought I was all prepared, as I raised these chicks from day-olds with perfect success....just didn't really think about all the variables of them being hatched by their mom and not a machine! Quick answers would be great, since it'll get dark soon, and the rest of the flock (of 6)will go back to the coop!
