I have several questions. I have a broody hen that sitting some eggs (which i do not know if they are fertile or not). It is the middle of winter and I am looking at them hatching (if they are fertile) in mid-late Febuary. It will still be pretty cold then. So here are my questions. Will she protect the chicks from the cold or will I need to provide a place that is warm enough for them? Once the chicks are hatched, can I let her and the chicks run with the flock? If I discourage her from being broody, will it affect her getting broody at a later date? I have 4 hens and a roo. Sorry for so many questions this is my first time.
