    has been some time sice i was last here--health issue--i recently gave my portable broody coop and pen away---but my bimbo girl buttercup , { like clock works during the summer months --goes broody every 6 weeks }- she has 12 days left before hatch --question is , she is in a side coop and run with a hen and a roo---can she safely raise the chicks in that envioriment , or should i separate---i plan to give the chicks away as i already have 10 layers and 2 roo's
