When my broody hatches her chicks Friday or sometime this week I need to accomplish two things - I need to add to her brood any chicks that hatch in the incubator (due to hatch the same day) and I need to move the new family to a large crate that will have more growing room than her current one. When is the best time to move her, before the chicks hatch or after? I hesitant to move her before, especially since the poor girl has already been setting for more than 30 days (first on a bad batch of eggs, then on another). I'd hate to cause her to give up this late in the game. Also, how do I move them? Do I put the bator chicks in the new crate and then move mama and her chicks? Or do I wait until after I've moved her and then add the bator chicks? I know to try and accomplish all of this after dark, but any other advice would be most welcome.
