Our precious Silkie just decided she wants BABIES!! And has been collecting her (and everyone elses eggs) for a few days now. (We just hatched out 6 eggs in the incubator and have 6 healthy chicks hanging out in the house) SO my questions are, Do I remove her from the rest of the flock? - 4 roosters (who all get along) and 9 other hens share her coop. The nesting box she is in is about 2 feet off the floor of the coop, will the chicks get hurt (or worse) when they hatch and try to get out? My son wants to take the chicks from mom when hatched and bring them in, since it is Oct. and going to be getting pretty cold...good idea or not? Will mom get sad or depressed? Would bringing her and her eggs into the house and putting her in the indoor brooder be better for her and her eggs? Would she accept "our chicks" after these ones hatch to have a big brood following her? Sorry for so many questions, we just started this chicken world in the Spring and this is our first winter with them. First broody hen. (and have become my son's world...he's going to be a chicken for Halloween if that tells you anything) Thanks for any help.
