Ok, I just wanted to hear some advice. My broody just hatched out 5 chicks. She is a leghorn and not a people person. I raised her from a chick but she never liked me. She is darn right mean. If I bend down to give her food or change the water she will jump on my arm or back and attack me. My kids cannot interact with the chicks because she is so dangerous. One of the reasons I thought it would be fun to hatch chicks is to see the mother and chick interaction. But I also want to be able to interact with the chicks too. This is my question. Are all mother hens so mean or is it just mine? Do I have unrealistic expectations to be able to hold and bond with chicks too or this impossible when a broody hatches them? I have to go in the pen with a long sleeved shirt and gloves for my protection - even them she will still attack me. I am thinking of taking the chicks and raising them myself and getting rid of her. What do you think?
