    We got six last year only because the dog wanted babies from the feed store, now we have three hens sitting on eggs, will the lil ones be ok running the whole coop or do I need to place hen and lil ones to themselves away from the tom, ducks and chickens? The dog is beside himself waiting for the babies to hatch, He and Tom like to go inside the shed and lay with the mom's and sleep.

    I’d worry about the chickens possibly attacking them. If you can separate the poults with their moms for the first couple weeks, that might be the safest thing to do.
