    With a ton of eggs underneath them. They are due to hatch at any time.
    Can I put all the moms and all the chicks together in one area?

    I have 2 silkie moms raising chicks together with no problem. They didn't hatch them in the same area and the chicks are a few weeks apart, but I decided to try putting them together and after they had there little disputes they have been living together for quite a while now without issues.
    I would say go ahead and try it, but have a plan in the back of your head if it doesn't work out.

    yes, I had two RIR hens raise only three chicks together. They did great. I love it because it makes me feel better knowing they had twice the protection.
