We now have three brooding hens, a first time for us but, I guess, not for them. All of our turkeys share one coop at the moment. One of the broodies emerges in the morning for breakfast and again towards dusk for supper. The other two are now in their third day of sitting and, as far as we can tell, have never left their nests in the coop during that time. Should we leave them alone with food and water close by or should we force them to take a break outdoors? The reaction from them when we get close suggests that they wouldn't make it easy fro us to move them!
