Hi to all, and I hope someone can help me. I am fairly new to chickens having just started this post summer with three hens and two roosters. One hen went broody and I let her sit on the eggs as it would be my first hatching and my young hens as well. She had been an excellent mother hatching 4 chicks and taking exceptional care of them. It been amazing watching her and then. Now to my question. The chicks are one week old and my young daughter and her class want me to bring them up to the school and leave in the classroom for about 4 hours. The chicks will be two weeks old on the the day am to take them. Will they be fine without their mother for that long and will she react ok to then when they return? Or should I only take them if I can take momma hen?
