Our bantam has been broody for a week now. I'm thinking about letting her raise chicks so the kids can see the whole process. Is it always necessary to separate the broody hen and eggs from the other chickens? Broody mama is a bantam and we have five other full sized hens plus a rooster. The whole coop is in a fenced area with a couple of pygmy goats too-- they do like to chase the larger chickens. Not sure how they would react to chicks.
