The most eggs your broody has hatched out herself?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Anyone have a personal record?

 

One of mine bantams just hatched out 14 chicks... I was surprised as she was only just able to cover the eggs.

 

That's a record for one of my hens.

 

Usually they have about 8 hatch.

 

So what's the maximum number of eggs your broodies have hatched out at one time?

My Rock, Betty Blue, hatched 10 chicks from 10 eggs last summer, under the rasberry bush in the garden.

200 something birds. 8 species. ♥ Norman ♥ Norma ♥ Misha ♥ and ♥ Taylor ♥ are my babies.
