Found a SSH broody way up in the hayloft night before last. Managed to move her and her eggs into the nesting box in the coop. She's got something like 20 eggs under her- no way is the nesting box big enough for her and all those chicks, not to mention it's up high. Obviously, I'll need to move her down. Is there a cut off point when they shouldn't be moved? Normally I just grab the eggs, but this is *the meanest* broody I've ever had. Anyone familiar with this breed hatching from mama? Do I need to move chicks inside once they hatch? Want to make sure this breed isn't prone to kicking out or killing chicks. In a perfect world, I'd move her under the bank of nesting boxes separatet but visual to the others. Because it's winter, can she keep 20ish chicks warm? (I mean, this breed is on the smaller side anyhow, so I worry....) My three silkies are no longer broody, or I'd sneak some eggs under them. *sigh* What do y'all think?
