When they go back to laying or getting ready to usually the chicks have to go. I do have one hen with quail size chicks and laying to, but she's older to. I had another pullet wean hers about quail size, laid a few eggs and back to setting, so I gave her some preferred eggs and now she's got them hatched off.

The only thing that I think coulda happened was the 2 stags got into it. So I separated the other 2 into dome pens and put a pullet in each. Then realized crap I need to keep them (pullets) together to breed back to their dad so I had to hurry and make a trio. Usually no I don't pair up yet but needed to break some up

That looks like heat stroke had a hand in that. Two of my free-range broody hens got into it yesterday and heat just about got both even before they could do real damage. Just flying to roost is a problem when temperature is over 100.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

I had a blue last year stay with them til about 5 months lol. That was pushing it but she kept the ruble stags from wailing on each other. That was a risk though. Won't do it again just to be safe.

Had 3 die in the past 2 days.. Heat exhaustion. 

 

RIP Gamer (son of Fabio) .. I have 3 of his chicks surviving free range with mama. Sold his offspring off last year. I should have kept a spare.
