I have 2 broodies tonight. Good thing Mama couldn't take the BR, and Fisherlady hasn't gotten a response from her guy. Of all the pullets I ordered for their desire to brood, it is a Golden Buff that is broody! The BR is shocking too. I was sure the Jersey Giants would be the mothers. Looks like I have to re-think my chicken math.
How old of chicks are okay to bring in June?
I wish that fellow would get back to me on what he wants to do... as of now, I say don't worry about him, if you have a good home for the little ones then go for it. Don't hold them for a 'maybe' thing!
As long as I have room, the chickens can all stay put. With hens going broody, I really don't want to break them. I have no room in the incubator, and before I got the incubator, having a broody was my dream. So, the chicks will stay with their moms. If you (or your guy) want the 3 White Rocks, 3 GLW, 3 BCM chicks I hatched or anything else, let me know. It is just one pullet I offered that is broody.
In June will be another story. I will be BEGGING for people to take chicks!
