    im getting 12 chickies from mypetchicken and right now i have a silkie. If when they arrive she decides to go broody can i place all 12 under her at night? and if so how do you do it? or should i just manually raise them inside my house. They have a safe coop and run that is completely protected! Which one is safer? thanks
