Hi, We have a Buff Orpington sitting on eleven eggs due to hatch in May I'm pretty sure there are about 3 Faverolle eggs, and another 2 Buff eggs, with the rest being from our other girls who are Rangers, Blue Hybrids, or Columbian Blacktails. We have one Buff roo and a Salmon Faverolle roo so all chicks will be half of either. I was wondering if it would be safe to keep our broody in the coop with the others, as someone told me she would keep her chicks safe. At the moment she is sitting in a nesting box in the coop, as we tried to move her to her own house but was having none of it! We've been keeping chickens for about six years but never got a broody to successfully sit on some eggs, so we're all really excited!!
