I'm a rookie at chicken farming as well as "computering", so please bear with me while I learn. I have 10 hens of various breeds and one rooster. We've been learning "seat of our pants" how to care for them for about 8 months now and all has gone well so far. Previously when hens got broody, we segregated them for 4-5 days and that did the trick, but about 5 days ago, I discovered one setting on perhaps 3 eggs at most - don't know for sure because I collect the eggs at the same time daily and that days batch was shy about 3 eggs. Because of the cold temperature I didn't want to isolate her ( I don't have an extra hen house) for fear she'd freeze. I wasn't really ready for chicks yet and don't have an incubator or plans to get one. Is it ok to just let nature take it's course and let her hatch them herself. I do already have a warming box set up just in case I need it. Do I take the chicks away from her once they're born? If so, when do I reintroduce them? My local library doesn't have much info and I don't know where to go for answers. Thank you!
