    Can I put 2 broody bantams in the same cage in different nest boxes? I have 1 modern bantam and 1 silkie that are sitting on eggs and I have one 'safe' cage for them to be in where the others cannot get them. The eggs are due to hatch about 8-10 days apart. What does everyone recommend?

    If there is enough space for them to get out the box, eat drink and poop - I would think it was ok.
    Good luck!
