Hi BYC'ers. I have a broody hen (free ranger) sitting on a clutch outside of the coop in a sheltered but unprotected area. I think she's been there for at least 3-4 days. I'm glad I didn't lose her, she's one of my smartest, biggest, and healthiest girls! I'm unsure if I should try to move her to a make shift brooder, or just leave her there undisturbed and let her do her thing. I put water and food near her, and she happily ate and drank but she just really wants to be left alone. The other hens visit her but don't bother her. We don't have a lot of predators around, and we haven't lost a chicken yet, but I'd love to see her hatch some chicks and become a mamma. Should I move her or let her be? Will it be too stressful for her? She is not used to handling at all. My coop is already pretty full and I can't make room for temporary housing in there (new coop building plans are in the works but not here yet). I'd appreciate any hints or help to make this a success Oh yeah, this is my first broody hen!
