I have two momma hens... Three weeks ago my first Brody hen hatched her 6 babies. Just a week ago the another Hen hatched her two babies. Our flock and our rooster has accepted both moms and babies... However just two nights ago we found one of the second moms babies dead by a huge hole in her head from a chicken pecking her... Just today I saw the first momma hen go and attack the other momma hens last baby and almost kill her... WHY?! I don't get it? Why would another momma hen attack another momma hens babies?! All the other hens leave the babies alone and keep peace. It doesn't make sense to me- she has her six babies so why does she try and kill the other babies?! We have isolated the baby with her momma hen and I have been putting medicine on her ripped skin on her neck. If that other hen wasn't a mom and didn't have babies I probably would have killed her by now. This hen that is attacking the babies is an aracauna.. Which seems so unnatural to me too! The other momma hen is a black australorp.. Anyone else have dealt with this? It just boggles me with this behavior! You would expect it from maybe a rooster and another hen but not another mother? Anyways, thanks in advance for any help.
