I just hatched 7 chicks in my incubator and about a week ago my porcelain d'uccle went broody. I have read up about Brodie's adopting chicks, so this morning I put two chicks under her. She seemed to be doing fine. Through out the morning I have been taking one egg out and putting one chick in. She actually seems to be doing great I moved her from the nesting boxes to the brooder and she has been staying on the chicks. I did notice though one time she pecked on one of the babies. I haven't noticed any other times. She does know that chicks are under her and puffs her feathers up any time a chicken goes near her, but I guess my question is will it be safe for me to leave them with her unsupervised because of what she did? The babies like to go under her but some are unsure as to what to do. Also this is my first time using a broody so any help is greatly appreciated.
