Hello.. I am looking for a bit of advice.. I have 8 hens and one rooster.. I free range my chickens but one of my hens has been sitting on her nest in the common pen where they all sleep at night. I checked this morning and there is a baby chick..
I am trying to find out the best way to do this.. I am afraid to move her and the chick because she might turn on the chick.. this is her first time.. she seems really protective if I get near her she starts making noise and puffing up.. I don't think she will hurt the baby but I am afraid that when I round up the group for the night that one of the other chickens or the rooster might get mean..
Should I take the baby away, try to move her, or just wait and see?
