Diamond (white silkie) hatched out 5 babies, 8/9 weeks ago and she is still mothering them, some of them are almost as big as she is, my question is when should I seperate her from her chicks. Even though she is still Mothering these chicks, I need the space for a nother broody. Everytime I go to get one of her chicks she attacks me and bites hard not just a peck either. Its more like a dog with a rag toy, its a grab , pinch, hang on and twisty kinda bite. She is normally so sweet but these chicks made her into a little devil Mom. Is she going to freak out when I take them? whats the best way to do it? Thanks Sandy here is a picture of Momma Diamonds and her Kiddos.
