Speaking of broodies, my white showgirl just hatched a BO, a Black Swedish, and a Pekin and we finally have her back to normal just waiting on the eggs again. The black showgirl has been broody for almost a month now so i finally gave her two duck eggs so she is due to have babies in another week or two. Then three or four days ago my cochin who just recovered from an attack and is now one eye lighter is kicking the black showgirl out of the nesting box and stealing the two duck eggs so it looks like i will be picking up two or three eggs for her to hatch now also.
We have a Rhode Island Red that is broody right now. And although chicken bites don't bother me, she is probably the most aggressive hen we've had. When she attacks you and there is an egg near her breast that she can see... she starts pecking it like it did something to her. She was biting me the whole time I was lifting her up to count eggs. I hope GAM lets this one go to hatch her own eggs. I bet she'll make a great mom.
