I've searched the boards for an answer to my particular question but no luck so here goes: I have one broody hen sitting on a dozen eggs. They are due to hatch mid to end of next week (May 3-6 or so) She is in a separate coop and has been since I put her on the eggs Since then another hen has gone broody. Can I put her in with the other hen and give her some of those eggs to sit on? She has been broody for about a week. I have been waiting to see if she will stay broody and it appears that she is committed. Both hens are Cochran, a little less than a year old. In the past I have successfully let 2 hens hatch eggs in the same isolated coop at the same time but they went in there together and sat for the same amount of time...and then co-parented. So fun! Any help with this is greatly appreciated!
