I am not sure if this is the right area for this or not. I have a free range hen that hatched out 13 chicks. The day they hatched and she brought them to the house we moved everyone to the "nursery". They were about 2 weeks old when a family member asked if she could have the babies and wants to hand raise them for pets. She picked up the babies and momma hen has been just so depressed! She has not rejoined the flock, she knocks at the front door and last night she was up on the porch railing hollering into the house. Today is day 3 of this. I am wondering if I should go get her one of the babies or if it will pass in another day or so. It is sooo heartbreaking to see her looking for her babies and she thinks we have them in the house. This is her 3 "litter" and the first ones we didn't let her raise. I really appreciate any ideas or suggestions!
