    So I have another question! Momma and baby are still doing good.

    I let them out together the other day because it was quite nice out and the other chickens kept going after / picking on the baby. I know usually mom protects them, but it appeared she was only protecting herself... running away from the baby when the other chickens came near. Is this normal? (This is my first year ever having chickens so I’m quite new at everything lol)
