I have a broody Dorking hen!!! Unfortunately I haven't got everyone sorted into breeding pens yet so it will be pot luck with who the father is. I had the ladies separate till the boys staged a jail break and joined them. Now I just need to decide what I'm going to put under her. Try for pure Dorkings or just go with a mix and hope she has better luck hatching pullets than me! How many do you think she'd cover? I was thinking a dozen but I've heard of them sitting on huge numbers. I don't want to overload her, it's her first setting and I want to make sure she has a good hatch.
