Hi everyone, this is our first time we've had a hen go broody completely and since we have a rooster we figured we would let her sit on them. However, we have had two chicks hatch out about a day apart and both have died. We just found them under Mama dead. I am worried the broody is homicidal (it's her first time after all and it could just be confusing?) and I want to monitor and then take the chicks away as they hatch. Or maybe she is smothering them by accident or something? However, my mother (they are her chickens really) wants to leave it and see what happens. I was wondering if anyone here has any insights about what to do?
