    hi, I currently have a hen who has hatched out just one chick (who is now a week old). I have just bought two new chicks so the original chick has friends, and they are also one week old. What is the best way to introduce the mum to the new chicks, any advice much appreciated!

    People all say it's best to introduce the chicks at night in the coop when momma is setting on her other chicks, just stuff the new chicks under her...... give that a try.
