It's not normal but she didn't necessarily kill it. It may just have died and she's eating it to clean up the nest.

Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”                  Mark Twain

I'm a worry wart.  I would not give her a chance    with live chicks., I would put them in a brooder with heat lamp .  If she hatches any in your presence, I would  let her have them if she  practices good broody behavior.  A new mom, wants the newly hatched chicks under her, and will flatten herself out to accommodate them. Even if she did not kill the first chick,  I'd worry that because she ate it,  she might want to eat more. :sick
