    So is it okey to move a brooding hen to another coop so when they eggs hatch the other chickens wont hurt the new hatched chicks?
    if its okey ?
    shall i mve the eggs first as soon as possiable?(this a dumb question!)
    by the way i havent noticed that the chicken was brooding except to day i always thought she was laying her eggs at the exact same time LOL

    It's okay to move a broody hen and her eggs, best done at night.

    I don't move mine though. They have a large crate inside the coop and mama does a fine job of protecting her chicks. My hens have hatched five clutches of chicks and raised them in the flock.
