Hey guys! So I let my hen sit on her eggs for the first time (about 8 eggs) and only one hatched (late, but healthy and happy). It's been aprox 30 hours since the hatch (that was on day 23 of incubation), and I don't think any others will follow.
Question should I move her and the momma to their own little area, or let them stay in the coop with the other girls? (I'd give them their own food and water)
Ive also thought about separating them two for the first week or so, let the babe get bigger and the hens get less jealous, and THEN let them grow up together.
All the other hens have been great about the baby, but a couple have gone too far and tried to sit on her instead of the momma. Is this a problem? Or is it okay that multiple hens want a part?
I have about 20 hens and 3 roosters, all super docile and sweet, so should I leave the two of them in there, or give them their own space?
HELP DECIDING APPRECIATED!!! THANKS SO MUCH
