Quote: I am so not surprised! They are a broody bunch I set eggs a couple of months ago from the non-broodies hoping to get some that are not so prone to this. Now a few of those non setting pullets have turned broody The plus is that when not broody they are great layers year round despite weather...maybe because they are broody so often? I do love that the roos are paternal and nurturing...will show the pullets the nest box...chattering and demonstrating. They are amazing fathers and will help raise the young. I hope she lays a nice clutch for you and you can experience the chick raising...totally AWESOME!
