Broody BBW

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My BBW hen went broody again this week. I have no tom but was contemplating letting her hatch some chicken chicks.  Has anyone had a BBW successfully raise chicks?  My biggest fear is her accidentally crushing the chicks, she is a plus sized lady as you can imagine.

This thread is interesting, a smaller turkey was successful at it, but still crushed several eggs and a day old chick in the process.  So with a big girl...! 

We raise broilers in the spring & Turkeys in the summer/fall. We also have dominiques, Easter Eggers, silkies, barnyard specials, red sex links, silver laced wyandottes, buff orpingtons, light brahmas, blue cochin, & polish. All loved by a toddler & brindle boxer. 4 generations on one farm 😊 We have a couple cows and 5 pigs, too!
