I have a question.. my dominate hen had two babies about a month ago now.... but now one of my other hens is getting broody.. she has been sitting on her eggs for almost 3 weeks now it seems.. so it should not be long.. What I am afraid of is that the dominate hen will kill the new babies since they are not hers.. the broody hen that is hatching them is very passive and I don't see her standing up against the queen..
Should I take the eggs and finish hatching them myself? there is no way to separate them.. I have been through that before.. :/ I just don't want them to hatch and get attacked and killed..
I am still pretty new to the Broody hen experience my dominate hens babies were the first ones we have hatched so I still am learning a lot of things..
