Hey everyone! I'm joining! I'll be getting 17 chicks on the first of March. But sometime in the spring I'm going to be having a broody hatch some eggs for me. This will be my first time letting a broody hatch eggs. I usually incubate instead. A ways I'm wondering if anyone can give me some advice? Or I can hear your experiences? I have already read a lot of broody articles and stuff. Just wanted some extra info. I'll be giving some updates and stuff when I get the mail ordered baby chicks, and when I get one of my hens broody.
Welcome!! I have no luck with broodies, so I hope the others can chime in for sure! I know to mark the eggs and pull any new eggs thereafter and candle same days as incubation so you dont get a exploder and have to clean hens and eggs!
he cant move lmao!! I did put his legs together to help pull the other leg, I am not sure I can fix this guy, seems like his "hip" ??? is pointed out and it dont really move, so I will take this contraption off tomorrow and see what he does without it, if he needs more I will rewrap him.
