I've got two hens and one went broody a few weeks ago. I bought a 7 day chick today and tucked it under the wings of the new broody 'mother' and all seems fine from that point of view. The problem is that the second hen immediately attacked me when I introduced the new chick and has subsequently attacked the new 'intruder' too. In two or three hours time it will be dark and I normally shut the two hens up for the night in a kitchen cupboard nesting box and let them out around 7.30 am in the morning (the early morning summer light means they get noisy around 5 am) but I am worried that the new chick will not survive. Should I keep the two hens in the same nesting box and separate them by means of a wire partition? Or should I keep them in entirely separate nesting boxes? Any advice welcome.
