    I noticed the last 3 days I have a golden buff (Goldie hawn) that has been sitting in the nesting box on a few eggs. Should I move her to another coop/pen I have? It's 3'x3' with an Inclosed run. No other chickens in there. Will she be ok away from the other chickens for 21 days? This is my first time with this. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    I'd just leave everything be. She's gonna hatch those eggs, so be prepared. Broodies are beautiful!
