Guide to Raising Chickens, Ducks and Geese

Learn everything about raising chickens, ducks and geese from incubating eggs to building a homemade waterer.

Watering Chicks
Many people take the hatched chicks into the house until all of the eggs have hatched because the hen often will be torn between sitting on eggs and taking care of new chicks. Put those chicks into a brooder, and then put them back the first night after hatching. To do this, go in late at night and slip the chicks under her while removing eggshells and wood eggs. You can add a few orphan chicks also if you want.
