    I have 5 baby chicks that just hatched under my hen. I have 8 eggs to go. I have been watching her closely to make sure she doesn't abandon the other eggs. Do you think I should go ahead and take the chicks and put them in the garage. I am all set up and ready or should I just leave well enough alone. She has been taking them out for a little walk and then they all return to the nest. What should I do? I need some advice.

    Congrats on your babies, I cant wait until mine decide that they actually want to set! We plan on leaving our babies with their mama, but if you want them to be as tame as the originals, then you would want to pull them.
