Need Help PLEASE! I live in Hawaii and have wild free chickens all over and I have many in my years. I have one mom who had chicks 2 weeks ago, and just yesterday another momma showed up in my yard with 10 newly hatch chicks maybe 2 days old. She settled in around dusk in a spot I was uneasy about and long story short after doing my best to protect her she was killed along with all chicks but 3. I only thought one survived as I only saw other two later today, but last night I didn’t know what to do saddened by this I knew this baby had a better chance if I sneaked it with other momma hen that nests in my yard safely. It was dark and I slipped chick under her successfully. This morning I had to work before light and when I returned home I was happy to see the orphan chick with momma and her other chicks had joined too. I then saw the other two that survived yet they must of went and hid last night. I noticed the momma picking at them, not the one I put under her the night before, but only the other two chicks. They continued to try to stay with her and others, but as it was night she was more aggressive and shunned them. I went and grabbed them and when momma went to roost again for the night I slipped the two under her successfully. Now she has 3 orphans, but seems to only peck at the two chicks that most likely found her in the morning after making it through the night together. The one chick I introduced seems to have made it without her shunning it. Only the other two.. Now I have successfully got the other two picked on orphans down with her tonight when she roosted. I now worry what will happen in the morning. Is there a chance momma will accept them after they’re with her tonight as she seemed to do with the other orphan first night? Or will she continue to peck at them and drive them away? I see them stay off a bit hesitant to join too. Sorry long story, but needed to explain what I have done so far in this sad circumstance. I’m hoping for the best for mom to accept them finally or should I pull orphans out and care for them myself? As I said it seems she was only focused on the two orphan chicks that must of hid last night and joined her today, where the 3rd orphan chick I saved was placed under her when she roosted last night and is blending in without being shunned. Any advice on this?? Is there a chance momma will finally allow them all to join her flock without shunning them? I noticed momma pecked at them more when I was feeding them and when she was going to roost for the night. There was some times they were among the rest blending in, but every so often I’d see mom go for one of the two. It was quite sad to watch as they lost their momma last night and just want that connection. I feel helpless and am trying to give them the best chance for survival so they learn what they need to do as they grow.. But, will momma get worse?? Advice, suggestions please!
