Hello all! A little over a month ago a neighbor at work brought in some duck eggs that had been abandoned. I had a broody hen so I decided to stick a few under her. I gave the rest to our science teacher who brought them home but said they weren't fertile. I didn't have much hope for my 3, but i figured it couldn't hurt. Another hen started sitting on top of the first hen in the same box. Well today one hatched (the other two were rotten). I tried to move the baby and a mom inside, but both moms wouldn't sit on the baby inside. In the beating box they are vey motherly. My questions are: Do you think they will keep the baby safe from my other hens? Once the baby starts walking, will the hens still work together to raise her? Should I remove her from the coop to avoid the risk? They seem to be protecting her now, but who knows. Thank you!
