I. Are these newly hatched or older chicks(feathered out completely). If they are very young chicks, I would take them away from her whether she was angry or not. You said it is very cold out. Can you make a quick brooder for them? You could use a large Rubbermaid clear color tote (leave top off) and fix up a brooder light (from feed store).
