Sooo my hen went broody and we decided to get her little baby Lavender Orpington chicks. She has been a great mother to the chicks. But we just got 2 more little chicks about the same age as the others. We have tried to give her the new ones but she keeps on chasing them away and pecking them! We know that she sees them as a threat and all but we cant brood them our selves. They are all 3 or 4 months old now and fully feathered. I think its time to separate them now. Should I take the hen away from her chicks now or should I keep her with them all, even with the ones that she has not accepted???
