Hi all- I have a bantam hen who easily adopted 2 chicks that I introduced to her about a week ago. Yesterday, I brought home 2 more, and she pecks at their necks, even letting them off the ground when she does so. They slept with her last night, which I hoped was a sign that she'd accepted them, but I'm not sure she actually took them under her wing. Any advice here? I'd love for her to actually adopt them, but at this point, I'm ready to move them out into a brooder for their safety.
