I have a bantam cochin that hatched out some BR babies two weeks ago (15 days to be exact). She is an excellent mama but I think I have to confess I am a little concerned about her decision tonight to take the wee little ones to bed with the big girls. The coop has an upstairs and a downstairs each with its own entrance. Mama and the babies have been downstairs on their own. She has had them out with the flock when they free range most of the day in the garden and all seems well. To be honest I am pretty sure all the girls are scared to death of mama since she is very protective. So I guess I am wondering if I trust my first time mama and let her stay upstairs with everyone else or do I go and move her and the wee ones downstairs for safety sake??
