    Hello all,

    One of my hens has been sitting on her first best for about two weeks now. Her best is inside a coop she shares with 3 other campbells and 5 pekins. The coop is 8x4 feet so I'm wondering if this is enough space for her to hatch her ducklings. Im thinking about building a box on the side but I'm afraid that would bother her too much so mane just a partion wall with a hole in it. I'm also concerned because it's February so should I bring them in after they hatch? I've never hatched eggs before so I'm feeling just all around nervous and if anyone has any first time parent advise it would be much appreciated.
