    I just had two of my chickens hatch out chicks. They have been nesting in the long grass... I am surprised the fox that has been lurking around has not gotten them already.

    I want to move them to a safe place because I don't want to lose the only two hens I have that go broody, and all their chicks. Can I put the two mammas and their babies in the same pen??? Will they get along and not pick on each other's chicks? I don't really have the facilities to put them each in a separate place with food and water.

    Mommas and babies should be fine together. Lots of folks have multiple mommas/hatches and they say they share duties more often than not.
