aracauna hen to hatch chicks

  1. Babyface is special, gray and has wild, wicked look to her. I have saved her eggs and a few of another brownish aracauna hens eggs for about a week now and she looks to be starting to get broody. She spends all afternoon on the fake eggs, but so far gets off at night. I plan on "transfering" her to a quieter, safer place once she gets setting good. Anyone had good luck with this? Any suggestions? I have in the past let them be where they are and put a small cage around the front, but I'm not set up with that option now. Merry
