My broody bantam mix hatched 3 chicks (2 BA mixes and a white crested black polish). They are almost a week old and I finally moved her back outside. I let her keep one of her chicks (1 of the BA mixes) and put the other 2 in the brIooder. I was just wondering what most of you do? I was afraid to let her have all of them because she is the outcast of my flock and usually won't even sleep in the coop (she prefers a tree). I lost my Polish Roo so this is probably my only chick from them and I would be very upset if it got injured outside. I'm just wondering if I made the wrong decision?
