I have just started out with chickens, and a friend of mine has got 4 brooding at the moment and can't deal with that many more chicks, so they want to give me a broody. I've read here that moving chooks, especially to a different flock can break broodiness, so my question is, what would be the best way to go about this?
My plan at the moment is to have her sit in a box for a couple of days where she is, on golf balls, and one night while she sleeps close the box and move her to my property, and then leave her for a couple more days to see if she stays broody. I will then place some eggs under her, or chicks after a while longer then, depending on what I can get my hands on.
Is this alright to do it like this? She just went broody this morning, or broody proper.
Thanks, I will appreciate all help
