  1. Broody Hens & Egg Laying
    We have a hen that is 16 days into sitting on her eggs. We marked 8 eggs, but she only has 1 left as of today. They've either broken, been taken out by accident when collecting eggs or been tossed out of the nest... or otherwise gone. We got a brood/chick coop and are trying to get that set up...

    Are other members interested in having broody hens who will do all of the incubating and brooding for you?
  3. Broody Hens & Egg Laying
    My Americauna pullet has gone broody on a false egg. The weird thing is, she hasn't even started laying yet! She's about 20 weeks old now. Is this a sign she will be laying in the very near future? Also, if she stays broody, could I put some hatching eggs under her? Could she succesfully hatch...
