Ok so I had tried earlier to hatch 13 eggs..only one hatched..I have this one chick in the house..so I"m on day 15 of another batch in the bator to give this little one come company. Then today I find a clutch of eggs Two chickens are going broody on me and there are 11 eggs. I count my hens every night and they are all there. I candled the eggs and they are just started. But I don't know which one is broody and made the nest! So I guess my question is I have a youth chick area about 3 1/2 feet by 4 1/2 feet. If I put in two nesting areas because it is obvious they are both broody cause when I moved the nest with the one hen the other one started making a new nest there, Will they be ok together?? I probably will try it but wanted opinions. I had both in there together and there seems to be enough room if each sticks to their own egg area. My plan...very genius one is to take these 16 eggs I got laying in the bator and swap them out with the mommas eggs..hehe..pretty clever..and then add this lonely chick sometime at night when the others hatch. I know I need more chickens and I am fine with that, my hubby is not. I already have 22 chickens in the hen house and need to cull before winter..but seriously the chickens are making my chicken math lose control!!!
