That's so sad.
But, why not seperate them?
I did separate them as soon as I knew what was going on. I have a free-range flock right now and would like to keep allowing the mother hens to raise their own chicks if it's safe to.

Most of the flock treats the babies with respect and kindness from day one. I even have two hens that like to tag-team and after going broody on the same nest would "baby-sit" each other's chicks!

It's just the one hen that I got as a pullet and didn't raise myself that seems to dislike young chicks (only very young ones, not the older ones). Even my roosters help take care of the babies.
