So we gave one of our broody hens 5 eggs to hatch, today we got our first one hatched! Once they’re all hatched and fluffy, do we need to separate mama and babies from the rest of the flock? Or will they be fine on their own? They have an outside area where they are most of the time and the mama and babies are in the inside area. The flock is inside with them at night, I’m just worried about the flock being aggressive or attacking the babies. Where do we go from here?
