    I don't think I'm ready for this. I have 12 (1yr old hens) 13 (16 week old) and 29 ( 4week old) not counting our new (2 ducks and 2 turkeys) NOW one of my older BO's just went broody 2 days ago. dumb me just wanted to see what see would do so I put 3 eggs from my other ladies in front of her and she took them under her. I don't know how many eggs there are but I put feed and water close to her. The problem or question is she is on the floor of the coop and not in a nesting box. should I leave her or try and move the whole group?
