I have a hen that sat on 8 eggs, and 6 hatched.. So when she got off the nest, I waited and she didn't get back on so I assumed the eggs were no good.. So I picked up the two eggs and was going to candle them, and I heard chirping! I hurried and put them user the heat lamp and waited .. The next morning I had two more chicks! Now my question is will the hen accept the chicks now if I try to put them with her? Or should I just keep them separated? Idis try to put the eggs back under her to see if she'd sit on them, and she pecked them a lot.. So I don't know if she was trying to help them or hurt them.
