Mcdermottm - I was lucky - I saw the signs early ( have dealt with broody hens for 5 years now) and also when she went into Jail - it was turning cold and dark - one day of jail and 3 of snow showers and dark skies seemed to do the trick ... now waiting to see if she gives an egg again soon ! :)
Gramma - put me down for 2 bunches of spearmint and one of the flowers :) I am determined to have NO lawn to mow - and mint should be good for that ! :)
Yeah - that is worse than an early broody - at least she will stick to it - and I have seen chicks do fine with an experienced momma even when the night gets frosty ....
but nothing worse than finally allowing a broody to have eggs - and have her bug out once they start developing !
Well - I have one Millie who has decided to go broody and she is quite diligent so far. The only thing is all her sisters have decided to join her! Every night I pick the other up and put them to bed, one is trying to hatch a plastic egg!
I also have 1 RIR who is broody, so I gave her a couple of Millie eggs to sit on - who knows?
Expat Brit living the dream - 40ish chickens, 2 Beagles, 2 cats, rabbits........and counting.
