    My little Henny Penny hatched a chick! After three tries, usually not on her own eggs, success! She is in the coop with the others.
    Do I move her to a separate cage? Do I move the unhatched eggs with her? What excitement!!!

    My other chickens tried to eat the chicks that my broody hen hatched out. Almost scalped one of them before I found it. I took them out, put them in a brooder as they hatched, then once they were all hatched I gave them all back to her in a safe enclosure. Good luck.
