4 so far! So of course now I have new thing to fret about. Will mama work out feeding on her own? Will she get them to the food or bring them food?? How much should I intervene or simply let her manage? She is in a safe brooder box, she has a waterer and food container. The feeder is baby friendly though I am not sure about the waterer. It is one I use when mama-less chicks are a couple of weeks old. Will mama protect them??
