We have 3 hens who all decided to go broody at the same time. We want to build them a small separate coop away from the rest of the flock so the other hens don't keep laying eggs on top of them and mixing new eggs with eggs that have already been brooded for a few days. So my question is can I put all 3 girls together in a coop? Will they know which eggs are theirs? Will they bother each other? Anytime a hen went broody in the past it was one at a time and we put them in this very small coop away from the others. We can't use that one this time because it's 2 small for 3 mommas and is currently being used by a broody hen with 1 month old chicks. Any help much appreciated!
