I'm new to the chicken raising business. So far it is more pets then production. I have two of the original four bantam hens purchased. The raccoon got the other two. I just wanted eggs for the family (only 2 of us). Now, I have two broody hens and no eggs.
I've read many of the posts regarding broody hens so now I'm going to give one of the methods a try. I will put my girls in a wire cage and see how things go when they have no access to a nest. Cross you fingers. I really would like to get fresh eggs again.
