About half my chicks have hatched in the coop yesterday. They are under mom in a nesting box on the floor. My other hens and rooster seem to be going about business as usual and not even phased by the new arrivals. I have been closely watching everyone for bad behavior and been prepared to separate them. I would love however to keep them together. Is it too risky? Have any of you just let the mother hen take care of everything?
