    After much anticipation my hens efforts were a success!!Two beautiful dwarf chicks hatched yesterday,and another hatched this morning...after a shady start with the new arrival she let it under her and now things seem well!!
    I was just wondering..can i touch the chicks or is it best to leav her to it?And also how long before she stops sitting on them ALL the time? And when can they all be reunited with the roo who is very lonely in the garden?thanks:D

    Congrats! Give her a couple days and she'll get up and get moving around and be more active with the babies.
