    I have three orphaned chicks 3 and 4 week old chicks. After the death of their mamas two of my older pullets(3-4 months old) took them under wing, literally. And have been protecting them ever since. The chicks are well fed and healthy so I left them together. Is this normal behavior for such a young bird, let alone two young birds?
