    If I seperate my broody hen from the rest of the flock will they accept her back in once the babies are hatched and gone? I'm not sure if they will just remember her or what? All my chickens seem to have aggressive personalities. They are always pecking each other, drawing blood and pulling out tail feathers. They have a huge coop and run so I'm not sure why besides that they are just little toots lol. I also have a huge rir rooster. Thanks in advance!

    Yes, your hen will be accepted back into the flock. She might have to go through a period of adjustment, though. I would expect her to be pecked. That's just the way chickens are. A lot of it will depend on whether she submits quietly or fights for her old place in the pecking order back.
