Hi all, One of my hens went broody a little while ago, and she successfully hatched 3 chicks about 7 weeks ago. I have heard that after 6 weeks or so, it is ok to put the mother hen back in with my other adult hens (I have 4 adults hens in total) but she is being completely picked on by one of them, and then another joins in. So it is 2 on 1, full on fighting. Not just fether pecking, but jumping up with they feet and tryingt o peck the head and eyes. The 3rd adult hen is completly in her own world, and doesn't get involved in any way. I have had to put the mother hen back in the run with the chicks, but I need to find a way of re-introducing her to the main flock. She is laying eggs again now, so I want her to be able to free-range like the others. I also need to know how to introduce the chicks when they are old enough too? Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Ian.
