    Help, my two silkie moms are fighting very seriously. They have 8 babies which they hatched side by side. There are two eggs left. Now the two moms are fighting horribly. What can I do?

    Separate them asap. Some hens may brood together fine, but won't tolerate each other or the others chicks once the chicks have hatched.

    Will they ever get along again?

    I did and kept them apart for a while. Now they seem to get along better.
    Thanks for your suggestion.
