as the title indicates, I have a problem with my broody Buff Orpington hen attack ANY living thing under her, partially in an egg, hatched, etc. I'm worried she will attack the chicks she is about to hatch any day now. has anyone else had this problem? btw, she's a first time mom. the first incident was with ducks, I managed to save an injured duckling. second incident was when I got silkie chicks and tried to put them under her during the day while she saw me put them under her (my fault and she didn't kill any). last, most recent incident was when I put an egg under her that was about to hatch the next day or so. I put it under her at sundown behind her, and next morning, she was still sitting on it, I showed her "her" chick, and she started puffing up, growling, etc. at the chick and pecked it where the pip hole was. will she do OK with these maybe? anyone?
