    I have two little hens that have gone broody and they sit on the same nest together. What should I do? This is all new to me.[​IMG]

    If you want to hatch some eggs then put some fertilized eggs under them and let them go to town.

    If you want to break them then put them in a wire bottomed cage with no bedding for a few days. After a few days return them to their coop and if they return to the nesting box to brood repeat the procedure for a few more days. Rinse and repeat until they return to normal.

    Good luck.
