Broody hen question
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
No. A lot of people do things similar. I moved my hen into a small pen for the same reason. Also because the other chickens were laying eggs under her and she was pushing the eggs I had marked for her to sit on out (she couldn't fit all of them under her). As long as she has room to move a little and food and water, she should be fine. A broody hen doesn't move much anyway.
