I only have 4 chickens no roosters all my chickens get along fine 3 bantam and 1 buff orp, the bantams all pullets the bo is a hen. 1st I had 1 broody and the girls were laying their eggs in her nest she seems quite content letting them, 1 pullet doesn't go in anymore the broody gets out of the nest for the bo and the other pullet was going right in with her to lay her egg but now that pullet has gone broody too, both are sitting on the eggs, I only have 3 eggs in the nest and the rest in the incubator I was hoping to slide the hatchlings in under the broody, they don't seem to be fighting over the eggs just sharing the sitting, will they fight over the chicks later? or will they both protect the chicks? all of my flock is very close never a squabble (all 4 of them anyway) I tried separating the broody out and she came off the nest and through a tantrum so I put her nest back with the others, so thats out of the question. I'm just wondering if I'll have to keep all the chicks in a separate brooder or try the 2 girls raising the chicks.
