When I opened the door to let Smokey and her 2 day old babies out the rest of the flock came around to see what was happening. The WL roo got into the area with Smokey, picked up one of the Wellie babies by the neck and flung it! Smokey went crazy and attacked the roo. I grabbed him out of there and closed Smokey & her babies up. The next time I opened the door she came out with her babies while everyone was out freeranging. No one messed with the babies because Smokey would attack anyone who even looked their way. Smokey got into many scuffles at the start - even with the 2nd rooster - but soon the others just left her and the babies alone. There were some tense moments, but I kept an eye on her with her babies. She was a very good protector. She did a great job of showing them around and who to avoid. Those two roos are now gone - but I would probably still keep the mom & babies in their area until they are 4 days old before trying to let them out with her. You have to look at your flock - my WL roo wasn't aggressive before and after that he didn't try anything with the babies - so I don't know why he suddenly attacked that one little Wellie. The other roo was a LO and he kept trying to get at Smokey - but that could have been just because he was getting attacked by the WL roo & it was a territorial thing.
