I have a question. We had three hens go broody. (Our first time) Our brahma hatched 6 chics. They are 7 weeks old. We put her and the chics in one coop. Our other coop has our hens. We have a coop for just the bantams, and our last coop has our adult guineas and 23 baby keets. We don't have any other coops, and we aren't going to be building any. I have a silver wyandotte and her 3 chics in the chicken tractor. They are 4 weeks old. And we have a golden wyandotte hen that has three chics that are a week old in a little metal pen. It is used to take birds to shows. Is there anyway to combine chics? I don't know how to merge. And I don't want any to get hurt or killed. Any advice would be appreciated. *Also, all three hens went broody in the woods. They sat on the ground for 3 weeks. Majority of eggs didn't hatch due to maggots and ground conditions. Next year when my hens go broody, can I put them in the coop with their eggs?
