    Hi all. My 4 white silkie bantam hens just hatched out 1 baby each. One of my silkies keep on running over to the other side of the coop to fight with the other ones.

    Does anyone know why she is doing this. There are 2 silkies that help take care of each others babies. There is another white silkie that left her baby and the two other silkies are helping take care of that one too.

    The two that are helping eachother out are the ones that the other silkie keeps fighting with.

    Why do you think the silkie is fighting with the other two. They are not bothering her, they are on the other side of the coop trying to stay away from her. But she keeps running to the other side of the coop to fight with them. Is she trying to protect her chick or something.

    I NEED SOME HELP VERY BADLY!!!!



    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

    I really don't have an answer for you except that if they were mine, I would separate them in the coop, even if it were only wire around them. at least until the chicks were older.
