So...should we separate the broodies and give them chicks? Right now they are sharing a nestbox and have been for 2-3 weeks, and when one gets up the other covers her eggs until she gets back. I think they've bonded a lot, but I'm nervous about leaving them together. They are both in a coop that's about 8x8 and today DH put a dogcrate in there, so we could move one on the dog crate and give her some chicks, and keep the other one in the nest box, or keep them both in the nest box...it's just hard to decide! Please offer suggestions asap...we'll be moving them in an hour or so.
