We have three first-time broodies (and we're first-timers, too). Based on suggestions we read here, we moved two of them (Speckled Sussex) two nights ago, and then the third (Buff Orpington) last night into a spare stall in the barn. As of this morning, all seemed to go well. They'd been acting broody in the coop for 10-15 days. This afternoon - two (one Sussex and the BO) are out of their new nexting/broody boxes and walking around the stall. (and fighting each other a little, too). I was hoping that I had just happened to catch them on a "break" from setting, but I checked again two hours later, and they are still up and about. Do I hope that they go back to their broody ways tonight? Or do I give up and put them back in the coop with the others? Unfortunately I don't have enough space to give each broody her own stall. One is sitting on eggs that are about 10-14 days along, and the other had fresh eggs put under her when we moved her last night. We were so excited at the prospect of having baby chicks again! Maybe I shouldn't have waited so long to move them. Or maybe I should have done it as soon as they started acting broody. I've obviously got a lot to learn. Thanks for any ideas you have!
