What's the best broody serama or dutch bantam
post #2 of 2

I have six serama hens that have gone broody since August 1st.  One hen spent more time off her nest than on-no eggs hatched. Another hen brooded eggs very well and hatched some chicks-she is a horrid mother to the chicks. She runs and darts everywhere. If she were outside she would have lost her chicks quickly.  Two of the hens appear to be "weaning" their chicks already and they are not a month old yet. Only one has shown herself to be an excellent brooder and mother.  This is the first time for all six hens; maybe they will do better with age and experience.

 

I know nothing of Dutch bantams.
