Clairice is almost broody, laying the last of her clutch then sitting on her eggs after,her fecies/poop is coming out in big blobs and isnt that a sign??? a nasty sign! but shes not totaly broody yet and she is only being squacky to my other chicken. so i seperated them.i locked clair in the coop [where she and marley stayed then they were chicks] and marley outside with a nesting box for her eggs.they both usually sleep on the roost outside but i put clair in the coop till shes totaly broody and to protect marleyshes fine around humans.shes starting to notice me when i open the coop window.but shes never pecked anyone.so im wondering if isolation is a bad idea? i found the idea on several different websites.but is it cruel?!? i dont think so, you?
