Two of my Buffs have become broody. I have removed them from their normal coop and placed the two of them on 10 fertilized eggs each in a small coop (4'x4'.) My question is will the two mother hens coexist with their broods once they have hatched or should the two hens be separated with their respective hatch? Thanks!

I got broken eggs doing that-- from both of them sitting on one nest, and I've heard of mothers killing babies as they hatch when there is more than one broody... so I'd separate them just to be safe.
