Can I keep two broody hens in the same coop?

    I have a mama cochin with 7 chicks in my small 4 x 8 coop. I have a second cochin who has gone broody and I was going to slip her some chicks. Can I put her in another box in the same coop or will that cause problems between them?

    I think it will be fine. It's always a good idea to kind of watch a little bit at first and make sure things go smoothly.
