I have 2 girls broody right now. My Duccle is sitting on 3 eggs (not fertile) and my Silkie. I am going to pick up some eggs tomorrow for them! So Im not sure what to expect. Do I have to seperate them from the rest of the flock? (if so would a covered litter box work?) I do not have (or want) to use a heat lamp in my coop, will the mama take care of them and keep them warm herself? Once they go broody will they stay broody till the chicks hatch? Will they get off the eggs to eat and is that safe for the eggs? Do i need to turn the eggs or does Mama do that??? Thanks for any info you can give me!!!
