I never would have thought it would be my barred rock!! or at least I think she is a barred rock... honestly I really suck at breeds, but that is what I assume she is. Last night when I went out to close up the coop, she yelled at me as soon as I set foot in the door. She spent all night on the nest and was still there this morning.
I do not have a big rooster that is old enough to breed yet, all we have is a little banty roo and he really likes the bigger girls, but seems to fail at making that "special connection" lol. Idk, maybe he will surprise me and we will have some bigger eggs hatch, but I put all the banty eggs under her (Pretty sure most of them are fertile, or should be at least), along with a few other eggs that I'm not really sure are fertile.
How does that usually turn out when you have a bantam and a regular size chicken that breed?? Also, what is the max number of eggs I should let her set on?? I have only had one other hen that went broody and that was about 10 years ago. She was such a sweet mama.
I am really kinda excited because I was not expecting one to be broody so soon, we just got this batch in March. I know she is old enough, just wasn't expecting it!!!!
