I've got a girl setting now.
Hoping for a hatch any day now.




She started with 11 or 12. She's removed 3 that I know of from the nest, and sadly we lost 1 this morning.
I just now counted 6 left.


So yes, to answer your question a Pekin hen can and will go broody.
She's done a wonderful job so far and I really think if we get a successful hatch that she'll be a good momma.
