I have a lavender orpington hen that I'm trying to encourage to go broody. I know you cannot force a hen to be broody but I've read if you leave her eggs in the nest she may decide to set after so many have collected. Right now there's 6. My rooster died last week so I want to hatch his (and her babies). My questions are, do lavender orpingtons go broody easily? And about how many eggs should I expect in her clutch if/when she decides to brood?
