I have two broody hens that just won't snap out of it on their own so I must intervene. My question is can I put both of them in the broody breaker together (an approximate 3' x 5' wire cage) or do they have to be separated. Thank you!

It depends. If they get along well, they can probably be in a cage together without issue. If these birds didn't get along that well and/or they're crankier than usual, they can take out their frustrations on each other. So yes, try them together, but be ready to do 1 at a time or separate cages if necessary.

Well I tried them together and that clearly was not going to work out so I removed Ellen and left Audrey in the cage since she's been broody the longest. Once she's comes to her senses and set free.. in goes Ellen. Thank you all for your much appreciated advice.
