One of my hens is brooding in the coop shared with 2 roosters and 6 other hens. right now there does not seem to be a problem, since she is just sitting on the eggs. I am not sure what to expect when the chicks hatch. Are they safe with momma hen to protect them, or should I consider a relocation for her before they hatch. She will be a first time mom and is very protective if I try to look under her. I have to catch her out of the coop in order to see what she has.
