I currently have a broody hen who is sitting on a nest of 11 eggs. some of those eggs are meant to give to a friend who wants to raise chickens. But. I am wondering, will the hen know if some of her babies are missing? We will probably let her raise them for a while because it's easier and because my friend is getting married and then will build his chicken coop. Will she notice that some of her chicks are gone when he comes to get them? Does a hen count her chicks? Does she know them individually? Does anyone have any experience with taking chicks from a mother hen? Thanks for your thoughts.
