Does anyone have a situation where their hen is always broody? I have a hen that loves to lay and set AND hatch. She is an EXCELLENT mother! She always allows me to place other eggs under her with no fuss. I can touch, pet and check on her whenever I want. She is not fussy or aggressive at all. When the chicks are hatched, she allows me to play with them and handle them anytime I like. She hatches every egg under her and will take care of her babies for about 8 weeks and then she goes broody again. I'm afraid that she will tire out from this constant behavior of being broody. Is this a good or bad problem to have? What should I do? Should I just let her do what she likes to do and allow her to lay, set and hatch as often as she likes? Please tell me your thoughts.

Quote:To be honest, I'm almost at the point of renting her out. When I get home and see that she has gone broody "again", all I can do is shake my head and say "NOT AGAIN"!


She does have a twin sister. I can have her there to you by 5pm today.
