Hi! We've raised chicks before, but have never let a broody hatch her own. When will she start taking the chicks out to eat? She is in a nesting box, I can tell she's been out, but I'm not sure the chicks have gone with her yet. They hatched two days ago. Should I help make sure they all leave the nest, or just leave them for another day or so?
