My hen is broody and when we tried to bring her to a new place to hatch she refused for 24 hours - we didn't want to break her broodiness so we put her back out in the coop and she went immediately back to her nesting box where she was *originally* being broody. We are going to try a different method tonight. BUT... IF that doesn't work... could we successfully leave her in her little nesting box (which is SO tiny - 12x12x 9" high) to hatch her eggs? Here are the problems involved: 1- the box is 3 ft off the floor - so we'd have to block the opening off the day of hatching so they don't all fall to their death and get pecked alive by the other chickens. 2- the size of the box - is this big enough for when the eggs begin to hatch - ie, does our hen need to be moving around and standing up?? 3- we'd have to remove them all immediately after they dried to another area, which could be too upsetting for the mom? We are going to cross our fingers that the new method works tonight, but if not, we are wondering if it's possible to have her try to hatch eggs in that high, tiny box? Thank you so so much for any thoughts.
