Hi there, I have had chickens for about 10 years and just this morning am a proud stepmom of 5 baby chicks. I had a broody hen and posted a request for fertile eggs on Craig's List. Within a couple of hours I had 6 "fertile" eggs to put under this determined hen. Low and behold 5 have hatched! Now I am not sure what to do! The hen is being very protective and sitting on them still. Don't they need food and water? I am used to raising them with a lamp and in a box. I would rather that she do all the work this time but it is very hard to find information on how to do it the old fashioned way!
