Is this a bad idea? I had two hens go broody at the same time. They are sharing 10 eggs in one nest. When one hen gets off to go eat the other one takes over the nest. The misplaced hen usually sits next to her on the eggs layed by the other hens. I collect these eggs daily. I've also marked the incubating eggs so I know that no new eggs are added to the nest. My question is what will happen when and if any chicks hatch? Can I give each hen a few chicks or will all hell break loose? I don't have a seperate pen to move one of the mothers into right now.
