1 week old chick with broody hen

Recommended Posts

I have a broody hen that never leaves the nesting box. So yesterday I got her three 1 week old chicks and put them under her. All seems good , however, how do I proceed now?

The chicks are too small to jump down into the run. They can stay with her in the nesting box but how do I give them food and water? Right nowI have put food and water in the roost area. I can take it away before everyone comes in for the night.
