I have a RIR hen that is very broody. After taking eggs from her for a week straight I decided to let her hatch some out. She is in a run with 5 other RIR hens and our silver laced polish roo. Does she need any special attention. She never leaves the nest to eat and drink, at least not that I have seen. I will date the eggs so to keep track of freshly laid eggs. Also if the hatch is successful should I separate the hen and her baby's from the rest or should I take them inside and use my brooder until the get big enough to join their flock? Any and all help and comments are welcome.
