Questions for all you chicken geniuses. I have a broody BA. She's been sitting in a nesting box for about a month now and shows no signs of stopping. I'm going to go to a nearby hatchery today and pick up some chicks to put under her tonight when she's asleep. I only have one other hen and our coop can handle 6 adult birds easily. I'm planning to pick up 3 chicks. Here are my questions: 1 - Can I leave the BA in the coop with the other hen after I give her the chicks (assuming she accepts them without any problems)? 2 - Will the chicks be able to get out of the nesting box to get to food and water? If not, should I try to relocate the broody today (I've tried moving the eggs and she follows them wherever I put them)? 3 - Any words of wisdom I should know about? My girl is 11 months old and she's the most gentle of my little flock. (started with 8, but 2 went to freezer camp and 4 were given to friends) Thanks! I'm can't wait to have babies running around again!
