So can I put the hen and chicks with the other chickens, they are in a ridiculously large space, or should I keep the hen and chicks separate. Should I take the chicks from the hen and put them in a brooder? I am lost. Or should I just stick with getting more adult chickens? And leave the chicks for when and if my own chickens and rooster make some of their own? I really want the hen and chicks not only to get the numbers up, but also because then I will know I have a hen that might go broody again in the future. Also, the rooster we got is very old and very very calm, as are all the chickens except the youngest hen, she is flighty, but also the lowest in the pecking order. Anyway some advice would be great before I do something dumb and end up hurting a hen and her chicks.
