    hi i am new to backyard chickens , but love learning from you guys , i did something im not sure was best thing to do , i had a peahen go to setting on 1 egg ,i dont want anymore peafowls so i switched eggs with her i put 12 barr rocks under her,well the hatching went terrible , all 12 hatched but only 4 survived looks like she smothered them , so i moved her from big lot with her hubby to a small lot where snakes cant get in , just wondering what kind of mother she will be , ugh my nerves are on edge lol
