    Quote:[​IMG] I am so not surprised! They are a broody bunch [​IMG] 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 [​IMG]

    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!

    Keep your fuzzy chickens, poofy headed chickens and bare necked chickens.
    Nothing is more beautiful than a foofy cheeked, dark legged Ameraucana.[​IMG]
    And they love you back. [​IMG]
