    Clever girl! She can watch TV if she gets bored LOL We had a huge old kitchen cupboard, half of which we never used, so my hens used to sneak into the kitchen to lay in there and one hen went broody in there too. I lined it with an old feed bag for the mess and let her be. She sat there and hatched her chicks eventually after which we kicked her out. A kitchen is not a good place for a broody and chicks!

    I have only had three broods with momma and they always hung out even grown! but I had to loose the roos : (
    and if you mean leaving her side, thats a gradual natural thing they go farther and farther as they grow but never really far even grown.
