I have 3 broody Japanese all sitting on one nest, and someone is killing the chicks as they hatch. Not sure if it's one of them or another hen stealing them, but I've found 2 dead in the run and the broodies are still locked on their nest. Dumb birds. If I try to move the broodies now, will they stay on their eggs? I didn't want them to hatch any eggs until later this summer, but they refused to break broody and were making nests in the muddy grass outside if I shut them out of hteir nest boxes. better to let them at least be inside and dry to be dumb broodies.
