I have hatched under a broody before... I have always brought them into the house and let them do their job.. removed them when they were hatched and sent mom back to coop and raised the babies in the house till they were old enough to go to the coop thi time I dont have the space to bring mom(s) I have 2 broodies- into the house so they are brooding out in the coop. Both of them are in one nest its actually funny and cute what happens when they hatch? the babies cant get down out of the nest on their own so I will have to come up with some sort of brooder and put it in the coop but I want mom to be able to keep them warm and do all the work her self but if she can get in and out to eat will the others go in and kill the babies? i will make the brooder big enough for the babies not to get out i will give them their own food and water.. but i am worried that the other will cause harm... any suggestions?
