    Would a heat lamp above the eggs work? And if so what temp? What should I do move eggs back out to the other broody hen?

    Another chick question

    2 silkie hens sitting on eggs and 2 chicks. Moved both hens, chicks and eggs inside to get away from everyone else. Both hens were fighting so I moved the youngest back outside. Should I put the eggs back outside also or will one hen care for 2 chicks and 14 eggs?

    Chicken tractor

    Does anyone leave them in the tractor overnight. I wanted an option that I could put a few birds in each and let them do their thing for a few days without having to take them out each night?

    Chicken tractor

    I currently have 2 stationary coops and runs with 5 silkies, 6 golden comets and 6 barred rocks. I am thinking of making a couple tractors to get them out around the yard.
