How long does a broody need to sit before....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want some add some babies to my flock. I have a broody sitting and I plan to stick some babies under her and let her take care of them for me. How long does she need to set before she will be receptive to chicks?

If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it. 
Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once!
A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

I'd really like to know the answer to that. I'm hatching now and have a broody hen.

Me too. Is 8-10 days setting long enough if she has been puffed up longer than that? I could give her newly hatched ones.
