Ok so I had one broody hen sitting on a clutch of eggs and a few days later another one of my hens went broody over the same clutch of eggs. She sits in the nest box next to the first hen and when that hen gets up she sits tight on that hens eggs until she gets back then the first hen reclaims her eggs. So most of the time the second hen is sitting on nothing and acting like shes on a nest of eggs. Is that normal or are they using the buddy system because its been so cold here. And what happens if some chicks hatch, should I be worried that a custody battle is on its way over who gets to raise the chicks.
