    I have FIVE broodies...so its not as simple as moving the one hen and her current chicks really is it? Or should I move just her and then in three weeks when the others hatch their chicks where do they go? One is setting on three of the same olive egger eggs...but none so far have hatched...I think they *could* still anytime now though as its only been a day.
    Heres a link...I posted pics of the setup in the coop design part also wasnt sure the best place....what do you think?

    Hi, as long as the babies aren't being picked on I would just let them be. Best case is momma takes care of them without your help. Good luck.
