    I've got a broody hen—looking for someone in Indy area with fertilized eggs :)

    Hi all! I'm just looking to see if anyone in the Indy area (preferably north indy/suburbs) has a roo and some layers and wouldn't mind swapping some eggs with me. :) My silkie has gone broody and I've been looking to increase my flock. I'd be happy to pick them up! Thanks!
