I have a broody that hatched three silkies. I decided to move them to a separate coop as I was afraid some of my bigger hens would step on the littles as my room is a little limited. They are just over three weeks old and mama is getting very antsy. Every time I open the coop door she tries to escape. I did try putting her back in with the other hens and it wasn't pretty. The hens that were on the lower end of the pecking order have decided she is not moving back to her place closer to the top. I took her out and put her back in with her chicks. I'm not sure when will be the best time to put mama and her chicks back in with the others. I know she is ready but I am worried about how the establishing of the pecking order might go with the chicks so little. Any advice is appreciated!
