    Hi,

    My broody hen just hatched 3 chicks a couple of days ago--I bought 2 --4 day old chicks at the feed store, when I tried to give them to the hen, she kept them under her and wouldn't let them eat. Her own 3 chicks can come and go as they please, but the new chicks get pecked if they try to leave her and eat something. Is it going to be a box in the house for the new ones??

    Thanks,
