I have 5 hens and one is broody. Everything I read says to separate her but let her see the others for an easier reintroduction later. I bought one of those little coops with the runs that say for 4-5 chickens (Super small, but I figured ok for 1). I moved her, inside her nest box, last night. I slipped 12 fertile quail eggs under her. This morning, my husband opened the nest area door so she could go in the run and eat/ go to the bathroom. She got real upset seeing the others out and about. I came home from work and she was real mad. The eggs were cool. I Took one of her eggs and got it real warm, then put it in the middle of the quail eggs and locked her back in that area. She pecked at the tiny window, so I put a small towel over it and she quieted down. The other chickens were going over there, so I blocked them from the area. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm trying to follow advice I find, but it is always just part of my issues. I really am hoping for the best with this batch of eggs.
