We started raising chickens almost two years ago. In the spring my son had a keen interest in some ducklings, and I caved and bought three. Turns out two were drakes and one was a hen. The mating began close to a month ago and the hen started laying last week. I would like to allow her the chance to brood her own clutch. But I hear that Pekins aren't naturally broody and I believe she is a jumbo pekin. (She is larger than my RIR hens.) I would like her to go broody soon. Is there anything I can do to encourage broodiness? I already leave the eggs in the nest and she lays daily. Should I isolate her away from the drakes? They follow her everywhere. I think she enjoys all the attention. She is always calling to them.
