I've been looking for posts, I can't seem to find any... Maybe I'm not looking hard enough? I have a broody hen, she's been sitting on her eggs for about 4 days now. So I was just wondering, what am I supposed to do as "mother" of this hen? She isn't confined. She's with the other birds. I made her a nest of her very own. The other birds aren't interested as they aren't accustomed to it, so they aren't trying to steal it. I don't know if I have to move her or what I have to do? Will she protect the chicks? My rooster is protective of chicks...will help her? I just want to do this right...as right as I can. Whatever help I could give her...I'd like to! Thanks!
