OK- I got 4 EE pullets last year- my first foray into chickens. Of course one turned out to be a rooster. I did not want fertilized eggs, so we made him his own coop and separated him. We named him Stewie (because he may be stew some day). He is aggressive toward us when we go in to feed etc., so he gets minimal contact. My girls lay regularly and I added another hen from my neighbor's flock and all was good. But now one of my girls has decided to be broody and very rarely leaves the nesting box. Soooo, since my girls are on their second laying season, I am thinking of putting the broody girl in with Stewie. Can I get some pros and cons? My hubby thinks he would attack her, but I think he is attacking us because he is frustrated and crabby. I can foresee having to have him live up to his name after the eggs hatch, because we would need access to the chicks, but at least I would have some chicks. The coop is good sized (an old dog run). I have looked at some forums on ratios and see both sides, but would like some information on whether this is a good idea. My broody girl is hardly eating and I am starting to worry about her.
