Hello, I have 3 baby chicks, about 2 weeks old. I also have another chicken about 8 weeks of age. The 8 week yr old chicken is REALLY nice. I currently have the two groups separated because of age. However, I just let go of all my roosters and I was seeing if the baby chicks would be able to live with that hen in a large space. Before I did it, I let them get close to each other. The big chicken was fine for about 30 minutes then tried to stomp on 2 chicks. To me, it seemed like she was trying to kill them. However, she never kept going at it, she did it 1 time. So, is she being momma or is she trying to treat herself to chicken lunch?
