    I have two broodies together.They are sitting on DipsyDoodles frizzled cochin eggs. There are four hatched now. i have gotten advice now that I should separate them. So, I am working on making new spots for them away from the others, and each other. Once all the eggs are hatched, I will move them:

    see the cute little yellow head peeking out?

    You may not need to seperate them, but I would definately keep an eye on them, I have found that when you have 2 hens together one usually ends up being the dominate MOMMA hen, that all the chicks will huddle under then she will eventually try to keep the other momma away. [​IMG]
