The worst part is the evil hen hopped up as I opened the door of the box. The mom happened to hop out at the same time, so no one to protect the chick. I’ve had chicks hatch and be raised in the yard before, I’ve also put my young chicks outside with only a little chicken wire containing them. I think a part of my problem is a hawk killed my hen that would protect and introduce new babies to the flock. She was the best hen ever, always watched new babies and trained the younger chickens to be decent birds lol. No one is behaving right after she died. Hopefully my flock goes back to how they used to be, it would mean I have less to worry about.For next time, separate the broody hen so that she and the chicks are not in with the rest of the flock. Hens WILL peck other hens chicks, it's not just the one that you have.
