I have a broody Pekin bantam who successfully adopted chicks last year after a failed hatch. She has been sitting on eggs for two weeks, which were clear when I candled them. So, I bought four cream created legbar chicks at 2 days old and introduced them at night and all seemed fine. She was on dummy eggs which I left. The next day the chicks were fine, and the broody was talking to chicks, but when they came out to feed she growled and pecks at them - not so hard that it seems like she wants to harm them though. She leaves them alone if they are not too 'in her face'. I kept the light levels low which improved matters and removed the eggs. I was able to leave the chicks with her, but had to tuck them under at night time, which she was fine with. They were still OK this morning and she seems to call them for food, which they respond to, but then she pecks at them again - mixed messages or what? Today is sunny so I have put her and the babies in a run partially covered with plastic attached to a house. She hasn't flown at them or anything, but still the odd peck. When I last looked mother and babies were in a corner touching each other with no issues. Do you think she is accepting them, is there anything else I can do, or is it time to give up?
