So I recently got a new chicken, known for her broodyness. I tried putting her in with the rest of our chickens (who never go broody) along with four other newbies and she got pecked on relentlessly. She was able to escape to the roosts and I went in everyday to make sure she was able to eat and drink. One day I went in and she had been picked on so badly that the other chickens scalped her. Needless to say I seperated her and cleaned her up. She is now healed and we have built another coop for her but I don't want her to be lonely. I am wondering, she has a history of broodyness however she is not currently showing signs of it. Is it possible I could put some new chicks under her at night and have her take care of them? I want to try but am worried she will hurt them. Has anyone ever attempted this?
