I have a Broody hen that decided she would sit at the most inconvinient spot in the whole chicken pen! Right in the very far corner under the chicken coop!I can only see her when I crouch on the ground and look at her. It's still hard to see her though because she's a very small OEGB. Her eggs are due to hatch any day now and they are due to hatch right when I go on vacation!I'll have family staying home and taking care of the chickens for me, But My question is, What do I do if they hatch? I'm afraid that the big chickens will peck them and kill them! I mean, my hen is so small, she probably doesn't have a lot of room for the poor chicks to hide under her very good. I was thinking that I would poke a broom under the coop and try to run them out from under the coop? I have no clue. Help please!
