I have a broody JG so we bought a chick one week ago. They were doing fine except the Mom got out of the coop, the chick followed and the chick was pecked by the other hens while the Mom was dust bathing. Now I am worried about the Mother pecking the chick so have them seperated. This poor little chick must be in pain. She is not eating or drinking. The mother is very upset to be seperated but will she peck the chick if I put her with it?
I have never experienced a scenario like this, but given how protective mothers are of their young, I tend to think she would not join the chick pecking club. I would put the chick back with mom and watch carefully.
