Hello! I currently have 16 chickens living in a converted camper. Georgia, my cochin, has gone broody. She's been sitting in the nest box 24/7 (with the occasional super quick snack break) for about a week now. First there was just one egg in the box with her, on her third day of sitting a second egg appeared. I've checked every day to make sure no one has added anymore- right now Georgia has two blue eggs (hate to tell her that they aren't hers!). The other chickens leave her alone and I think she's comfortable there, but if this chicks actually hatch out they will be WAY too small to safely use the coop for a while. Can I wait to move Georgia and her babies until after they hatch? I don't want to run the risk of breaking her broodiness with a move, but I know that the little guys can't stay in there. (it's a good two foot drop out of the nest box alone).
