    I had three broody hens sitting on about 20 eggs. They hatched about 6 biddies. I'm knew to this and tried to raise the biddies together with the three hens. Dumb me. I had to move one of the hens out today because she kept attacking the other hens. Now she's going bananas wanting back in with the babies. What can I do to help her now. The other two hens are doing well together with the 5 biddies. Had to move one that they all abandoned. Lord, this learning is a hard thing to do and not hurt anyone (chicken).
