    One of my Bantams got really broody and started collecting the other hens eggs and sitting on them. I seperated her from the others and gave her one egg to sit on. This has now hatched and is 2 weeks old. Should I leave the mother hen with the chick or seperate them and put the hen back with the others? When will she start laying again?
