I have two hens that were in the same coop both go broody at same time and I allowed them to hatch eggs. I separated them as a safety precaution. The chicks are now four weeks old. The hens fought at first attempt to reintroduce them with each other. Is there a certain age or any recommendations to attempt again?
Thank you!

Fighting sometimes happens. I generally let them fight it out unless blood starts to get drawn, than I separate them again. I try daily until it gets solved.
