Today my chicks are 3 days old, only one is staying with Momma hen outside in the coop. This morning I am troubled by one of my other hens (normally a little mean anyways). This hen is **** determined to jump on Momma hen and her baby. I have pulled her off Momma hen 3 times but she just keeps coming back to jump on her! I'm scared for the baby chick, but I don't wanna take the chick away from Momma hen if I don't have to. My coop wiring currently has a few holes that are not allowing me to lock out the mean hen in the yard. So my question is what do I do?! I can either 1) bring baby chick inside with the other abandoned chick, 2) bring Momma hen and baby chick inside into a covered kennel, or 3) do I need to find a way to afford fixing these pesky holes in the wiring?
