Hatching in the communal coop. Am I crazy?? Does anyone actually do this? - Page 2

Thanks everyone, for your support! All seems to be well at the moment. Separate coop and makeshift run within the chook yard. And yellow peep seems to be fine!

Seems like you got the perfect set up, glad to hear that everything is working out, very cute chicks.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

The main trouble of incubating in the run is hens trying to steal your broody hens' nest.  Or the setting hen becoming confused when she comes off the nest and she then gets back on the wrong nest.  You can be quite sure that a new mother hen will do all of her babies' heavy fighting for them.

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.
