OK, so after thinking that one of my ladies had been taken by an eagle or something for two weeks, last week I found her in a woodsy area of the yard, sitting under the lilies and on fourteen eggs. My best guess is that today is day 20. I have one coop with a large run, one rooster and four other ladies. I have put a big feed trough in the coop with a light, chick food, water, etc-- I could put poultry netting over it. My questions is, should I move the eggs and mom into the coop so that if they hatch out in the night they are safer? Leave her alone? Bring in the chicks and mom after they hatch? I am happy to let the broody hen do the work of raising the chicks, but I want to make sure they are reasonably safe. What a surprise!
