I have 11 baby chicks that I let a Black Australorp hatch. They are a week old. I have 13 more that we bought that are 1 1/2 week or so old. The baby chicks we hatched are not from our chickens no more than the 13 are other than she hatched them. My issue is I was trying to put them all together so that they grow up together. Mama hen was fine with this at first but through the day she started beating them up and won't let them eat. I would really like all of the babies raised together. We only have 6 hens now and the 24 new chicks. I don't want to try to integrate 3 sets of chickens later on. So do I take them away from mom and bring them inside for a few days until she is over it or keep them separate until she decides she is done? That could take weeks and they are taking up the area we built for babies. Right now I have a large plastic pool inside. It had the 13 bought ones in it until today. Sorry this is so long. Thanks for any help.
