When my Welsummer hen got broody, I let her sit on 4 eggs - one hatched today and I found the peeping chick in the opposite corner of the nest than the hen. I went to pop it under her, and she pecked at it! So, I distracted her with food and put it under her at the back. It seems to have worked. Is that normal for her to be aggressive to her own chick though? She has 3 more to go, hope they all hatch! I don't think she's ever hatched a clutch before - she is I'm guessing 2 years old? I've had her a year and she didn't hatch any last year that I know of (got her from a breeder).
