Earlier this summer one of my hens became broody. I moved her to a safe private coop where she sat for two weeks then walked off. This time when someone went broody I watched carefully but did not move her out of the big coop. This evening when I checked (hatch date tomorrow) the egg was peeping and after a short horse ride the chick had hatched. Just one chick, she began with five eggs but being in the big coop just didn't work. I wish I had moved her and her eggs, maybe all would have made it, but these hens don't seem particularly broody and I didn't want to upset her again. I put hen and chick in a big cat crate and left them in the chicken coop for the night. I hope she has enough sense to settle back down on it.
