Hi, we purchased 4 chickens in February and have loved them ever since. Then we decided to hatch some eggs as we had a broody but it turned out she wasn't broody enough so we put the eggs into an incubator. Then a week ago we had to take our favourite hen (she had so much personality) to the vets and they advised to have her put down - she had a prolapse. The same day we discovered the incubator wasnt working properly and the eggs were cold. Fortunately our broody was now very broody and we put them under her for the night. She is a Columbian and rather large so we were worried she might have squashed them. She did a great job but with the incubator now mended we decided to transfer 5 of the 6 eggs back to it leaving her one to hatch herself. We separated her from the other 2 remaining hens about 2 days ago and she hatched a bantam chick, two of the others had already hatched in the incubator. We left her and her chick alone for over 24hours (as the book suggested) and then moved her to a run as we were quite worried about her health and pale comb. She trod on her chick so we decided to put it with the others in the brooder and put her back with the other 2 hens - the chick is fine but one of the hens attacked our Columbian so I got her out quickly. We don't have a big enough garden to have 2 separate pens so I wondered if anyone can help or is that it now - she will never be accepted again?
