I have this black australorp hen who just hatched some chicks today and a oeg bantam hen who hatched her eggs today as well, when or if can i move the nesting boxes out into a pen so the other chickens in the coop wont disturb them? Or would it be better to just leave them in the coop with the other chickens? The black australorp is in a 8x6 coop with three other hens and a roo, there are two hens who are broody. My oeg bantam hen is in another coop and its in a 4x6 with another hen and a roo. So what are your suggestions? Leave the hens in there or move them into a pen for right now? My oeg bantam hen is on a bench that i made where i put the nesting box on, its probably two or so feet high and i didnt know if it was safe for the chicks to actually get out of the nest onto the ground? Any help would be appreciated.
