A few days ago, a mother game hen hatched one chick. They have been living in a dog crate happily inside the house. This morning, a game hen who went missing three weeks ago came home, bringing 8 tiny babies with her. Question #1: Since these babies are so close in age, can I put the different mothers and chicks together in the same dog crate, and then transfer them to a stall together when they get older? (It is awfully cold outside for babies.) Or will the mothers try to kill each others' babies and I will have a massacre on my hands when I try to combine them? (These are all game hens, so they are crazier than average hens. ) Question #2: Since this new mama has so many babies, can I remove 2 of them from her and place one baby each under two of my other broody hens (who are sitting on wooden eggs) to break their broodiness? If the answer to question #2 is yes, then can I combine all 4 hens and chicks (2 broody moms + 2 real moms + all 9 babies) in one stall? Thanks for any advice!
