Ok so my light brahma went broody.. Figured what the heck why not throw some eggs under her. So she has her own along with a few from my Buff Orpington both fathered by my Americana Roo. I know theres chicks in the eggs cause one of my new americana hens is super ditzy jumped in on her and squished a egg. little chick half grown inside so I know for sure theres babies growing. If i'm correct in timing they are due to hatch around the 28th of this month give or take... But when they hatch I will be taking them away from momma and raising them inside in a brooder. Now my current chickens are all about one year old and hatchery chicks. So what do I feed the new babies? Medicated feed? or regular chick crumbles? and will they be ok to integrate with my current flock when they get older or no because they aren't vaccinated or anything? these will be our first babies of our own so we are very excited. I do want them to be as happy and healthy as I can so any or all pointers are appreciated! OH!!! and! how long after hatching should I remove any unhatched eggs?? I worry that my other hen might have laid a egg or two in there recently cause I came out and she was sitting on them for a hour or so then when I came back out the brahma was back on the clutch.
