Extreme broodieness!!!!! - Page 4

post #31 of 34

Well if you do go the chick route, You should have a backup plan. like have the stuff for a brooder on hand. You could go with eggs, but your hen might decide that that is a great time to give up on being broody.

 

for your question about eggs making her sick- it would only make her sick if she never got up to eat.

 

you would also be aware that the other birds in your flock are not picking on the chicks.

Serama lover~ My birds; 2 class A serama pullets, one of them Silkied,  3 smooth serama rooster, and two black Austrolorp hens  Pm Me if you want a serama Cockerel!

When she was being really stubborn she took up roost on grass on the kitchen Matt and on dogs bed after she got caught in the rain how much longer lol


Lol your hen is hilarious!  I can't believe she is pancaked out on the grass like that.

Hi all my wombat of a black rock has finally come to her senses and decided to snap out of being broody much to my daisybells delight as they were BFF LOL:-) all order is now restored in the coop ha ha
Many many thanks to everyone for their help especially Yorkshirecoop and chickensgalore.
Needless to say the next time I get a Broody I am going to go down chicks hatching route I'm excited I was already gonna do it in spring with my duck eggs under a broody hen but I'm gonna go for both.
