Ive never let one of my broodys hatch eggs before and I would like to give it a try. When you have a hen that has gone broody and you want to let her hatch some eggs would it be a good idea to place her in a separate coop with her eggs so no other hen can get in there and just let her out a little while each day? I have a 3 foot x 4 foot cage inside my chicken coop that I have used in the past to separate an injured chicken from the rest of the flock. By keeping her in the chicken coop with the other chickens but just out of reach, when I do turn her out with the rest of the flock I dont have any problems reintroducing her after she has recuperated. Should I put a nest and my broody in it?
