My last two females have gone broody side by side with two large nests of eggs. They are the only smart girls I have had ....ever! They laid the eggs 5 feet from the back of the house deep in a clump of bamboo within a chain link fence. They are 40 feet from the hen house/food and water. Its day three of 'broodieness' and I am confident I can keep these girls alive. What happens when the keets hatch? We have ten males that hang out and visit with the girls, will the males attack the keets? Will the mothers take the keets to the hen house when they hatch? Are the mothers aggressive enough to keep keets safe from my three cats? Just looking for advice / suggestions. Thanks!
