This is my first experience with having had a broody hen. One of my hens hatched a single egg on Dec. 16th. I've had mom and chick in the brooder inside the coop, next to the rest of the flock so everyone can still see each other, hoping this will help when the hen is reintroduced to the flock. This morning I went out to check on everyone and the momma had laid an egg in the brooder, the first since she went broody. If there were more than one chick, I would probably go ahead and put mom back with the flock, but am not sure what to do in this case. The baby is only 12 days old... what should I do?? Many thanks!
