    My Buff hatched 7 lovelies 3 days ago. ever since the first "peep", one of my Easter Eggers has been obsessed with the new clutch. She has found her way into the broody enclosure (we fixed that ), she paces outside the enclosure watching the chicks, and pretty much makes obnoxious sounds all day long.

    She didnt harm the chicks. Buff Mom is protective but not fierce. What should I read from this?
