We've just bought some chicks to add to our flock. One of our hens is broody and has been sitting on (unfertilized) eggs for a couple of weeks. We've just removed the eggs and placed two of the new chicks under her hoping she'd take to them. Everything went fine, she fluffed herself up, adjusted her position (as though around the chicks) but then a few mins later the chicks are out from underneath her and she's ignoring them. They playfully pecked at her and she pecked right back! We've separated them now, just to be on the safe side. Is this normal behavior? Should we try again, give them more time to get used to each other or try to break the hens broody behavior?
