Our broody just hatched 5 chicks on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning and she is now raising them in a big stock tank in our living room. The babies keep pecking at their mom though! Is this normal? They are grabbing on to her comb, wattles, eyelids... Mostly she tolerates it but other times she pecks back, or lifts them by their beak and tosses them off to the side. She doesn't appear to be hurting them as they bounce right back but I worry about her. I don't want her to get too stressed, or give up on the chicks. They do have a dish with chick starter and mashed hard boiled egg and are eating, so I don't think they are pecking at her because they're hungry.
