    I have recently built a ''hut'' and put it in the yard...so that the hen is isolated with her chicks when they hatch this weekend... this is my first broody, but i have had chickens for years....does some see sometheing wrong with the ''hut'' idea, or any additional advice..

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Sounds like a good idea...don't let the other hens see her...they will get jealous and join her and then you have four hens in one nest with stupid looks on their faces...no I am not ranting about my stupid birds but really...4 hens in one nest all broody! Get real!

    That does sound good! I wouldn't worry about the other hens...I am sure mine are just idiots
