    I just got a large Orpington who has a one day old chick of her own and I have two serama chicks about 3 weeks old. Tonight is the first night she is sleeping with them and I'm worried she is crushing them??!!! Is that possible? Will they be ok with her?

    Hi there and :welcome
    A mother hen is gentle with the chicks.
    They should be ok with her.
