    I have 4 broody hens. Three are in the same coop and another apparently crawled underneath the deck and made a nest. We have a smaller empty coop that we used last spring with another broody hen. Should I move all 4 into the smaller coop together? The "main" coop is not chick proof as the nesting boxes are high up and chicks could fall down. I'm not sure how these would be as mothers as this is the first time they have all gone broody. Thanks!
