Alright, I didn't know whether to post this on the hatching eggs or this forum, so I just decided this one.lol. I have a broody hen sitting on two eggs, only one made it. Yesterday was lock down and I won't be home until tomorrow night. (out of town) Will she stay and protect the chick until I get home, if it even does hatch a day early? I figured she would, but she's a first time momma. She's not aggressive at all, and her mate protects her and her nest. I plan to put them in a dog kennel inside the coop, only way I have. I was just wondering if you all think that she will stay on the baby because it will be tired the first couple hours, and if the large cage is a good idea? Thank you for your inputs. First time having a broody, she waited a year! And she's a Silkie! Will post pics. Just trying to plan ahead.
