I've had 4 broodies so far, ever. And so far, i've allowed them to set in the regular nest boxes, and i just moved them after the chicks hatched. But i've noticed that i lose a lot of eggs that way from what appears to be hens fighting to defend their eggs from other hens. The mama fights too hard and ends up sacrificing eggs in the process. Now, i appear to have 2 new broody hens, a buff orp and a rir (this 'll be my first rir broody). I want to set them up in my outdoor brooder. But since i've never enclosed a broody before, i'm wondering if there's anything i should know about putting them together in there. There's plenty of room for them. This brooder is very large. But should i be concerned that they will switch nests or fight over the eggs? How important is it that i make them boxes inside the brooder? Will they be ok without an additional box-like enclosure within the brooder? Any tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
