    Hey guys looking for some advice,

    One of my lovely girls has gone broody and I would like her to hatch her own chicks. Ive never done this and was hoping that you would have some step by step guidance. Should I move her or keep her there? I dont even know if i should lift her to see how many eggs are under her. And how can i make her the most comfortable and successful?
