I have had chickens for 4 years now, during which time we have had broody hens, and roos, but never hatched any chicks. I knew there was a broody hen staying up in the hay barn. I have 33 hens, 1 banty roo, and 2 turkeys that free range during the day, and we close their coop at night. Today I went out and threw scratch, low and behold the broody hen shows up and moments later a chick running behind her peeping!!! The broody hen has probably 10 or so eggs that she has been sitting on, up on the top of a stack of hay. We are in Colorado, nights are currently dropping to about 42*, but will be dropping more soon. I rounded up chick, food and water, and returned them all to the top of the hay where the rest of the eggs are, and mama hen followed. However, I have no idea what to do from here on out. Should I move hen, eggs and chick(s?) to the coop, leave them where they are??? I would appreciate any suggestions!
