    ok, hope I did the right thing...I had 2 hens hatch out 2 eggs each of BCMs, and then I hatched 4 in my incubator. Gave the 4 to the Cochin hen as the buff pecked the new babies. The Buff Orp is extremely possessive and has pecked me in the face...she will get so upset she will scare her 2 chicks and hurt them in her flippin out. Well today I had enough, I have to feed and water her with gloves and she will jump at you...so I took her out and gave her two chicks to the Whitie the Cochin....she is ticked off but I cant stand it any more.......hope this works.....
