Hi! I have a Silkie sitting on 9 fertile eggs. She is due to hatch them in about 4 days if my timing is correct. Currently she is in a nesting box in a small coop that she normally shares with just one other Silkie. (It's probably 3x4 feet, but they literally cram in the same nesting box every night and then spend the rest of the day out in their covered run. Right now I've got 6 ten week old Silkie chicks with them. They are all getting along great - one is a rooster which I'm looking for a home for, and the others we are waiting to see if there are any other roosters before I rehome a few more. My question is, Should I separate my broody and her eggs from the others until her eggs hatch? Should I block off an area to keep the others out? Should I just leave them all alone? We've only ever hatched eggs in an incubator so this is new to us.
