    I have a 6 month old Wyandotte Pullet. I recently move my month and 1/2 Cochin Bantam chicks to the coop. (We have 2) My Wyandotte is constantly around the coop and tries to get in it when I open it. Is she just broody or what? I haven't actually let her see the chicks up close because she's pretty big for a pullet.

    It may be the, or what. I would let her interact through wire for a while, before I let her mingle with them. She may want to be big sis or not. When you put them together if there is a size difference give the younger ones a safe place that the older ones can't get in, if you can.
