So my White Leghorn (who I was told won't go broody) went broody at 5 months of age, and we let her sit on 4 eggs. About a week ago, her sister decided to go broody, as well, and ended up sitting on the same 4 eggs (they sit side by side, take turns getting up and eating, and defend the nest together). Last night, 3 of the eggs hatched, and the babies are alive and well. My question is, whether I should separate the "surrogate mom", and perhaps give her some eggs of her own to sit on, or if I should wait and see how it all pans out, and let the 2 sisters raise the kids together. Who will the chicks follow, if they go off in separate directions? Is there any reason you can think of, why I should not let them "do their thing", weird as it may be ?
