I am sure the exact answer to my dilemma is here somewhere, but I am short on time and have been searching and can't quite find it, so hope someone can help. I have a Barred Rock who has gone broody. She has been in the same nest box for about 4 days. We took eggs the first couple of days, but have left them since. She has about 5 under her now. They are likely fertile and would hatch mixed breed chickens. I just assume she shouldn't stay in the next box. When and how do I move her? Can I switch out these eggs for others at that time? How long do I have to make this switch and what should I put her in so that she can be with the other chickens/feed/water, but still have some peace? One last question, if she hatches these out and does well, can I assume she is a "good mama" who can be trusted with more valuable eggs, or is is always a crap shoot?
