One of my Hens has gone broody and I'm thinking of getting her some fertile eggs. I'm a little confused about the logistics though. My girls live in a coop at night and free range during the day. Can the broody hen live with the others while she is sitting on the eggs? Or will I need to keep her in the coop during the day away from the other hens? When the chicks do hatch can I just leave them alone and let the hen take care of everything? Do they need a heat lamp? Can they mix with the older girls or will they try to kill the chicks? Do the chicks need special food? I assume they need medicated starter. How do I keep the other hens from eating it?
