    As long as they have fresh food and water close by and aren't where the other chickens can get at them you just sit back and watch the cuteness. [​IMG]

    FANTASTIC! [​IMG]

    As for what to do now, make sure the chick has a source of water where it can't drown itself, like a tune can with some marbles or rock in it,
    and starter feed separate from Mama's feed.
    Least thats what I been instructed.....[​IMG] WAY TO GOOOOOOOOOO!!

    I heard that momma hens can have chick starter when they are broody, so just give momma and the chick, chick starter. CONGRATS!!! [​IMG]
