my newest banty has gone broody!!! so i ordered her some eggs, and today when they came in, i moved her to the broody pen(so that when she hatches these babies out, they only get starter/grower, and not layer ration) she was NOT having it. she just paced. refused to sit on her nest(i picked up what she was on in the other pen, and brought it over) and just wanted to go back... so i gave up for the eggs sake... and moved her back. she immedietly sat on her eggs and tucked them in tight, and then screached at the newest "pre-teen" to the pen, who was curious as to what in the world she was huffing and a puffing about. . . im perfectly fine in leaving her in that pen, but the nesting boxes are 3ft off the ground and im worried about new hatchlings falling out... and then food... how do i keep them from eating layer ration? does everyone move their broody out? or leave them and chicks in their main coop? what do you do with your broodys? im not even a year into chickens, so forgive my ignorance i just dont want to hurt the little babies with all that protien!
