    my broody has two eggs that should hatch in about two weeks. I've never had chicks with a Momma before. My coop isn't large enough to make a seperate area, but I do have a greenhouse that is in a shady area now that the leaves are back on the trees & I was thinking of setting her up in there with them.
    Show me your nurseries please!!!
