I've increased my run to about 25x30 One hen went broody and hatched a couple chicks Thursday. Do I need to take them and raise them, or will they be okay with mom? I know in the wild, there's plenty to choose from, but being confined to this space, I don't know. I also made the mistake of taking them out into the run today. I took Mom and the two chicks out to get some sun and see if they would eat any of the grass. Mom kept fighting off my two month old Brahmas, but they ended up surrounding her and grabbed one of the babies and they were running around with her, and kept fighting to take the chick from each other. I got them before any real damage was done and put them back in the coop.
