I had two hens decide to hatch chicks. One started setting nearly a week before the other. The first hatch went great all but one egg hatched the problem was and still is we have been having considerable amounts of flash flooding and buckets of rain dumped on us here. So I moved the first hen and her chicks to the brooder that's up off the ground and out of all the rain. Now the other hatch is happening and I'm not sure what to do with this hen and her chicks to keep them safe. Would it been okay to move them to the brooder also? Or would the hens fight? Should I try and build another cage for the second hen? I don't know what to do.
