So it’s my first time with letting a broody hen hatch out her own chicks. And though I know this probably happens all the time, I was wondering how separating her from her chicks would cause her to react? The chicks are about 3 weeks old and they’ve not been separated before so I was just curious to if it would effect her at all. Does she even realize what went on or is she a bit panicked for a while? What’s your experiences?
