I have a very broody Old English Game Bantam who hatched bantam chicks for me not so long ago. She was laying again by the time the chicks were 6 weeks old, and she laid for a month, then went broody again! She has been such a pain in the coop I have recently taken her out and set her up in her own little cage.
I can get some standard Orpington chicks newly hatched in a weeks time but I am wondering how many she could handle? I've only hatched bantam eggs before so I have no concept of how big a standard chick is, and OEGBs are pretty small.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
