It is so much easier to let the mamas hatch and raise their young. This is Charlottes very first success story. She has been broody off and on for several months. In the henhouse she gets nervous and also keeps all the other girls from entering the nesting boxes. On one occasion her and the crazy bantam hen I call Patsy Cline were both broody and actually fought over the eggs and somehow moved them from nest to nest. They broke a few eggs in the process. Moving Miss Charlotte to her own "space" has given her much peace and has also been less stressful for the entire flock. Thanks for the advice Beth!
