If she showed up, I would have only one question.... "What hurt back?"
YO GEORGIANS! :) - Page 3902
I now have six out of nine broody d'Uccle hens.
Six! Out of NINE!!!
When I discovered the latest one yesterday, I was ready to sell them all. The whole flock. I want Cochins anyway (yes I know they're broody too), and that would give me the space without having to build.
But then I walked out to the Barred Rock run and had TWO eggs, which means a new girl laid!!
So then I felt a little better. For now. Still considering it though.
All my years with Bantam Cochins I only had certain ones go broody every year. Never had two hens in one group go broody and that goes for all colors. One would go and the rest would keep donating their eggs. HAHA! I would have to take the broody out or she would be sitting on a mound of eggs. I told you, once you get bantam cochins, you will want more and in every color.
