A couple of weeks ago I moved my RR hens from the front coop to the back coop so all my chickens could (theoretically) be together. I have one bantam hen that is wild, and she isn't contained with the others. For a few days the only egg I got was from her, but then the egg stopped appearing, so I didn't think much of it. I saw her around and just figured she has no intention of being cooped up. Last night I went into the stall where I keep some second crop hay for my milk goats, grabbed a bale of hay, and noticed a lump of feathered something on the bottom layer of bales. It's my bantam, keeping perfectly still, and she's setting eggs. I don't know how I missed the nest before, as it's right out in the open, except that it's usually night time when I fill the feeders and I probably didn't pay much attention to anything but hay. It's 2 degrees F this morning, and December isn't even the coldest month here (Maine). I'm thinking the hen is confused, and the chicks are going to die if they even hatch out. Should I remove the eggs and put her back in with the other chickens? Or should I just let her continue setting? More bantams I don't need, and I don't have anything else to hatch out right now--and it does seem the wrong time to try anyway. I'm not bringing chicks into my house, with or without a hen. I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions?
