I have two silkies who have been brooding for weeks now... I finally relented and purchased some fertilized eggs. My first time trying to hatch chicks... I'm setting up a separate area for the new moms & babies away from the other chickens. My question is whether I can put these two girls in a same pen with their eggs or do they each need their own area? Also, they have already been sitting on the eggs for almost a week... Will they get very upset when I have to move the eggs to a new nesting box? Is there any special tricks to this? THANK YOU!!
