    I have a chicken dilemma. I have a momma & a turkey both sitting on chicks that were hatched today & on eggs that are still in the process of being hatched. They have been sitting together in the same box and when I moved the chicken, she moved all of her eggs back in front of the turkeys box. Now the chickens are being hatched & they are traveling back and forth from momma chick to momma turkey. I have to get them into there own area & away from the other chickens. Do I put them together or do I separate them? My husband thinks I should just take the baby chicks and stick them in the brooder box. Any advice on what I should do would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I would just take them away with the mama hen and seperate them completely from the turkey, so they may forget about the turkey. I don't really know as I have never been in this situation, but that is what I would do
