    Before they are born? When they are born? Or if at all? I am new to chicken hatching. [​IMG]

    I didn't, and got away with it, but most people here say a broody hen should be isolated. Search and read.

    Isolate. I learned the hard way.

    Thanks ladies. I think I will isolate him. We do with the pheasants, I didn't think it would probably be too different with chickens!
