    wish me luck, she is a first time so i dont know how she handles switching, i was able to move her to the portable box during the day from the built in box in the coop and she sat there all day and i moved the box with her in it to the private hutch after dark, so im hoping she will be sitting tight in the morning and i wont have to worry about it, ill get pics of her, shes a beauty.

    Good move.

    Broodies do better by themselves.

    Wish I'd have done that with my last broody hen.

    I just moved my broody today to a separate area today too! This is my first time and hers too. It went well and she didn't mind at all that we moved her. I can't wait to see how this turns out!! [​IMG]
