    First the cute news. I have an orp broody with Polish eggs under her. I also have a silkie go broody so I put 3 more Polish eggs under her. I am soon getting some more Polish eggs, and as luck would have it-my Ameraucana just went broody!!!!
    Now the question. I have a 4x8 tractor with really good ventilation. Ideal for a broody. Can I put all 3 in there? How bout 2? With little privacy walls in between all open in the front. They all have different hatch dates. I hope so.

    Don't worry seminole, out of 10,000+ members, someone surely can answer this.

    I haven't done a study but it often seems like posts in the middle of the day get lost.

    I don't use a chicken tractor so I don't know. I have two coops, a run, and a lot of acreage.

    Thanks, Dac. Never thought of those midday posts.
