I have 2 girls that have gone broody, they sitting on golf balls at the moment, I have tried getting them to sit in separate boxes, but keep going to the pen to see them back in together, I have eggs ready to go under them, is there a trick to separate them, I don't have an option of moving to another pen, should I just put the 10 eggs under and see how it goes?

I would just put all the eggs you have in the box and let the girls share or sort it out. I have had this heaps of time and its always had no troubles

That happens 9 times out of 10 but sometimes half way through incubation. I find splitting 2 hens is best long term
