So another two of my hens went broody. I'ts been a crazy little broody town out here lately, so I've run out of enough nest boxes for them to sit in. So I have them in a nice dark rabbit cage full of straw. They originally had no eggs to sit on, and coincidentaly I had been saving some eggs for the 'bator to hatch. So of course I gave them the eggs..... When I putt them in the rabbit cage to use as a nest box, I made two little bowl shapes in the straw as to make a nest for each of them. I divided the twenty-sumthin eggs in the nests and then moved the broodies in there. The "nests" are like 2 inches away from each other, and one of the hens keeps stealing the others eggs. I checked on them, one hen had 4 eggs and one had too many she couldn't even fit themunder her lol. So i fixed that problem, took a while, but after returning the eggs back a bunch of times, I guess the other hen got tired of stealin 'em. So my questions are ; Will this work out? Once the eggs hatch? I wonder how those chicks are going to chose wich mother they want each night when they go to sleep under them. Will the mothers raise them toghether? Or would they go their separate ways, and peck the other mothers chicks when they come near them. Or will there be so many chicks they just loose track and don't care at all which mother the chicks go to during the day or night Has anybody ever done this "double broody " thing?. And how did it turn out?
