    I have a broody hen and no whey to get to my roos out at my mom's and I want her to have baby's. Ps. I also have not a cage to brake her and can't have roos where I live, for noise purposes.

    Maybe adopting her some sexed feed store/hatchery chicks is a better choice since you can't have roosters and 50% of anything that hatches is often cockerels. They must be under 6 days old, younger is better.

    I usually wait at least two weeks into broodyness before adopting during the night.

    Hens don't have to be in a cage to break... they can be locked anywhere away from their chosen nest site without bedding to build a new one. :)

    Look on craigslist for a wire kennel/cage for $10 if you can't afford a new one for $25.

    There is no need to allow a broody to continue. It takes a toll on them and by far better to bust them of it as soon as possible.

    If you can't have cockerels or cock birds where you live you should not be hatching eggs. Just bust the girls as soon as they go broody.

    Well I was thinking as soon as the chicks are weaned from June, I'll have my mom come get them and take them to her place. I can't drive yet so that is why I can't go out there to do it myself. That's were the rest of my chickens are at.

    And the feed stores where I live aren't selling chicks at the moment. She is about a week and a half in to being broody. But she has had chicks in the past and is a great mom.
