My banty Cochin hen hatched a couple of babies 3 wks ago, three Cochin x Columbian rock mixes and one Faverolle. These last couple of days she's been very negligent to them. She leaves them behind, and ignores them alot and because we have hawks I worry for them. I had a hawk swoop down and try and take them when I first let her into the yard with them, but since moving her I hadn't had any problems. She's back out in that yard now that she's taught her chicks how to jump out of the grow up pen in my front yard. Today I went out and they were all crying for her and she was a half acre away hanging out with the rooster! I've taken them away for now because I saw some hawks in the trees, and she hasn't even come back by the same area yet. She's back in the coop and with all the other hens. Is it okay to take them away? They are upset because they miss their mamma, if I take them away how can I get them used to me, or a stuffed animal as their mom? Will it just take time? Thank you.
