I have never had more then one hen brood and have a separate pen for the hen and chicks to have till the chicks get old enough to integrate with the flock. I just had a hen hatch an egg, one more is pipping, and a few more should hatch. I have 3 hens that started sitting on eggs in the last 4 days up till today, so in under 20 days I will have 3 more hens with chicks, and don't know what I will do, except to put them all together. Will or should I experience issues with the three hens and chicks being together? I actually plan on putting them with the hen who just laid, so that would be 4 hens with chicks. Any thoughts, experiences and/or suggestions? Thanks.
