Can you put multiple broody hens with eggs/chicks in the same brooder coop? Will they get along, and not attack the other hens' chicks?
Multiple broody hens.... Question 4 U.
Gosh, I don't know; I have never tried it. I hope someone can help.
Cross your fingers for me, that someone will know! :-)
they will kill other chicks. I would give all the eggs to one hen or separate them
Giving all the eggs to one hen will work..... :) Thanks!!
Jordonkittyjo, I think you are right. I took my babies who are about a week old outside yesterday. One got away from me and one of my hens pecked him right on the head really hard. I don't know why they are like that, but they are.
chickens are canibles and will not tolerate other chickes babies. roosters do the same thing
I have a few silkies that will brood togather and each will have eggs,when the chicks hatch they raise them togather,but that's only if they are brooding togather in the same box.
Hmmm.... I've never had hens brood together. But then again, I've never had Silkies. Good to know that's possible though. Thanks! :)
Glenda, I wanted to stop and thank you for your warm welcome to me. It was so nice to get away, but honestly I never forgot the friends from the garden. You have always been so kind and I thank you for that...Hay
Haystack, your kind words mean so much. You are a precious garden friend! The garden is just not the same without you here. :-) You are a blessing, my friend!!
