My Buff has been sitting on her little clutch of eggs for 20 days now. My neighbor said that I DO NOT have to seperate her and her chicks from my other hens because the mother will protect them and the chicks will be fine. I have 3 other hens. My Dad however said that the other chickens will peck the chicks to death and they should be kept seperate with the mom. HELP! Please give me your opinions and share your experiences.
