    My Golden Phoenix has hatched 8 chicks out of 11 and killed one of the 8 that hatched and has kicked 6 chicks out of the box. She's now sitting on 3 eggs left and 1 chick and I'm sitting on the 6 chicks for her. My question is once there all hatched can I give the chicks back to her? She's already killed one for putting it back to her.

    I wouldn't give them back to her. I would just raise them in a brooder.
