My husband and I collected (stole) eggs yesterday from our bantam coop. We currently have two broody bantam cochins and none of our hens in this coop are laying in their nesting boxes, they're laying in the furthest back corner of the coop (most difficult spot for us to collect). Well yesterday, after collecting, one of our eggs started chirping. I've never had this happen before. I panic, start crying because I'm a hormonal pregnant mama myself, and run the egg back out to the coop and put it back under the two broody mamas (I'm not sure whose egg it is). What do I do now!?!? We've raised chicks in a brooder in the house before but we've neverrrrr hatched our own or allowed a broody mama to raise a baby. I REALLY do not want to take the baby from the two broody girls. Since it's just one, I'd hate to raise it all alone in the house. However, we do not have electricity in our coop and there are 4 other hens and 1 silkie roo in that coop with the 2 broody mamas and baby and I'm terrified that the others could hurt the baby. The best situation would be for the mamas to raise it in the coop as apart of the flock if possible. But I can try to come up with a small separate set up in the house for one mom and the baby if I absolutely have to. I just worry about reintroducing the mama and baby back into the flock later and also don't know which mama I'd choose to mother it. OMG! UPDATE! As I was in the middle of typing this, my husband just texted me "WE HAVE A BABY CHICK!" It hatched! And it's the cutest little baby everrrr! HELPPPPP!
