I’m going to try to attach a friends video. Her silkie is a new mama. She’s pecking her only chick. She’s still sitting on eggs. We are wondering if this is normal behavior and ok. Or should they take the chick away? I guess cat post a video🤷‍♀️ I am still interested in shat you have to say!

Can you tell if she pecking it to get it to go back underneath her or peeking it to get it away from her? If she has a brooder set up with a heat lamp I would put it there until the rest hatch and then add it back unless she looks like she's not the maternal type then I would not leave any with her.
