I have a hen that I've raised from a tiny chick that is several years old, her friend died a couple weeks ago so we bought a couple more chicks (3 weeks old) hoping she'd be sweet to them since she's been very lonely. She seemed the broody type as I'd found her sitting on her eggs often. But ever since they've been in the coup I've had to keep her out of it as she pushes them around and pecks them and eats their food. It's a lot more time and energy for us to keep them separated and I worry about her safety during the day since she's out of the coop. My dilemma is should I find a new home for her, and get another chick, or do you think keeping them separated until they are used to each other will work? It has been 3 days now.
