ok, so my CM has decided to lay on a clutch of about 4 eggs. We didnt discourage her because we have lost half our flock to a red coyote in the area. so she is sitting on these eggs in a nesting box up off the floor of the coop. what is the bare minimum i need to do? i honestly dont want to invest too much effort at this point since i am dealing with a colicky 7week old baby. Can I move her and her clutch to a makeshift box to put on the floor of the coop? and then get some chick starter and water for the chicks when they hatch (to hide under a box that the big chickens cant get to)? is that it?? i dont want to completely seperate them, have to reintroduce, yadda yadda yadda.. if it helps our current flock is REALLY small. 1 banty cochin roo, banty cochin hen, 1 CM, 1 Barred Rock and a OEGB. That is it. And our coop is HUGE.....could easily hold 14-24 birds. So they are not wanting for space. They also free range during the day...but that has been limited since we have this current coyote problem. The eggs (if you are interested) are 3 banty eggs and 1 CM egg. So the potential is a CM/Cochin mix, Banty Cochin (and both of mine are blue splash) and maybe a OEGB/Cochin mix. So this could be interesting! TIA!
