    Thankyou all! My surprise was that Mrs Hen turned into Mr Cock and I've got a broody girl currently sitting on a nest, she's in the main coop so I will be moving her and the eggs tonight

    Figured it had to do with 'flock expansion'.

    Hello [​IMG] and Welcome to BYC!
    Please make yourself at home! How lucky! I haven't had a broody in 3 years [​IMG], if you have any questions feel free to ask!

    ooh I just hate when hens pull that switcheroo - hope you will update when the chicks hatch.

    I've had to move her and the eggs this evening under advice. She was in the main coop which is 2 ft high and shared with the others. She payed straight back onto them but when I secured her new house, I heard her moving around, I suppose I will just have to leave it up to nature tonight and see how she copes
