So, our BO has been sitting in the laying box on at least an egg or two for most of the day. I "think" she's going broody. She's all puffed up in there. I guess we'll know tomorrow for sure. But had some questions... 1) We have no spot to let her be broody in peace. She's in one of 3 laying boxes in the coop. Can I just let her stay there? What are the pro's and con's? 2) We're in western NC. While it hasn't been too cold yet, I'm sure it's only a matter of time, though the forecast is for a warmer than normal winter. What are the weather concerns involved with this time of year and a broody hatching eggs? Will the chicks have any chance at all to survive? 3) If we decide to let her go through with this, how many eggs can we add, and what is the process? Just take some eggs and shove em under there? LOL! 4) We have 8 other laying hens using those boxes...what is likely to happen if our broody is taking her daily food and water break and one of them go in there to lay? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
