We have two hens in a 4x8 chicken tractor. One went broody, so I got a few fertilized eggs for het to set. I thought they should hatch next week. This morning my wife came in screaming that eggs were missing and busted. Went out and the hen was crouched on the ground with four chicks under her. I got the chicks out for now, but was wondering if it would be OK to leave them or would the other hen kill them?
