I've successfully raised 3 chicks from our own chicken in an incubator, but now two of my big chickens are broody and each are sitting on two eggs. We've always taken the eggs, but decided to let nature takes its course and give the girls the chance to do it them selves.. I've marked the eggs they can keep to sit on. They are in the coop with the other non broody chickens, we have 5 all up and a rooster. Should I separate them, let them be or separate them when the chicks have hatched, or not at all? Any ideas or suggestions? We're going towards summer (i live in Australia) so weather/ cold wont be an issue.
