Hey all, my broody is still sitting on her eggs, but i just want to know before they come out. If the chicks hatch out, do i take them and put them in a separate brooder from the hen, or do i make a brooder and isolate the hen and her chicks from the rest of our girls? I don't want the other chickens near the chicks because i don't trust my chickens to leave them alone... what should i do? usually if people hatched from an incubator, then it's the brooder, but i'm having a broody hen sit on them?
