So we have our first broody. She sat on some eggs yesterday and except for an hour this morning, has been on them since. Once we realized what was happening we added more eggs (within a few hours). I know some people move a broody to her own area, and some just let them be. I'd like to hear from both groups. Our set up is a 4x12 raised coop, with 3 laying boxes on the back, and 3 more on the side. We also recently enclosed the area beneath the coop (with machine cloth on all sides except the side of the existing run which is chain link) and cut a hole in the chain link fencing of the run for a "pass through". In each end of that area, we placed an old tire, covered it with a plywood tent, and filled it with hay. They have been using one of them as a laying box. So we're now trying to decide if we should move her to that area, and close her off to the rest of the flock, with her own food and water. Issues...it's certainly not as secure as the coop. We've never had an incursion into the chain link run, and we buried the machine cloth of the new section into the ground a foot, but still...not as good as the coop. I've also read that moving them can break them of broodiness, which, obviously, we don't want to happen. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
