I had 2 broodies (silkies)sit on eggs together, hatch them out, they were getting along great for 3 days then one hen decided the white,and black chicks were not hers and was actively pecking and chasing them away. She was removed and now the one hen is looking after 12 chicks, I hated to do it but she would have killed them and I didn't have the room to put her in a separate pen.
