two broodys!!!!!

Hi , need answers/help!!!

I have two broody hens 1 white wyandotte and 1 white frizzle. The wyandotte is by itself which is fine, but the frizzle is still in the coop with the other hens.Both hens eggs are due hatch on the same day, so can i move the frizzle in the wyandottes coop, or will they be aggressive towards each other and chicks when they hatch?????

Thanks for your help

I'd anticipate aggression. Mother hens are fierce! How big is the space? Can you set up separate areas for each hen? That would help.
