In reference to my "Several Due Dates" post, everybody told me what to do once the first chicks arrive (THANK YOU!!!!). Next question is...After the last of the chicks have hatched, should be about a week later, and I put the first chicks back w/ the mom, I am afraid of the babies falling out of the cat carrier that they're in. It sits in one of the nesting boxes, which is about 2 feet off the ground. If I move everybody, including Mom, will she still take care of them? And also, how do I avoid this next time?. When I get a broody hen, I don't want to keep adding eggs under her at different times, creating this same "due date" problem. How do I gather my clutch of eggs, what do I do with them all, until I'm ready for one of the hens to sit on them all. Thanks everybody for your help.
