My Buff Orpington hen was so unhappy trying to sit on everyone else's eggs and me collecting them every day (I don't have a roo). I bought some hatching eggs and tried to set her up in a small coop by herself and she freaked out. When I put her and the eggs back on the most popular nest in the main coop she became very happy and settled right down on them. It has been one week and all is well, but I'm wondering what will happen when they hatch. Should I separate her from the others and let her take care of the chicks? This hen is not high on the pecking order of my little flock of 5 but she seems very dedicated so far. Also, I've only seen her off the nest once. Is she getting enough to eat and drink?
