My broody hatched out 12 very healthy chicks 3 weeks ago today. A few days ago I noticed the hen was attacking these two chicks, she grabs them in the neck or back or wing and shakes them and it looks like she's trying to kill them. They're the only two of their color so I don't know if its the color that is bothering her or what is going on, but when they see her they run for their lives. They aren't staying in the coop or run, they're staying on the outside and I can hear the hawks flying around. So I'm pretty worried about them. The really unfortunate part is, the chicks don't really know me. They're pretty scared of me. That is thanks to my over aggressive rooster and the infection in my hand that he gave to me by sticking a spur in my finger. So the chicks won't come to me, they run. Why is she attacking them? They seem pretty healthy to me, but maybe she knows something I don't know. From what I can tell, I think one is a pullet and one is a cockerel, but I could be wrong. How do I get them out of the coop? Should I get them out of the coop away from her? I'm all for the circle of life or whatever, but she's only attacking these two chicks and I don't think its fair. So if I separate them and they die then thats fine, but I won't have her kill them because she's a nutjob. Should I wait for night time to get them out and put them in a different cage? Sorry for the long post and all the questions, I'm just kind of at a loss.
