    I have 3 pekin bantams of which 2 of them have went broody. I have tried to putting them off but to no avail so i have decided to get some fertile eggs for them. So here is my issue. The 2 hens are sittin on top of each other so will i have to seperate them from each other and the third who is still laying eggs. Or will the 2 broody hens work together hatching the chicks. And how many eggs would be best to get them.this is the first time they have went broody.
