My friend had a broody Ameraucana that she did not want to deal with--so I brought her home with me! She is still settling in, but has spent some time in the nest, sitting on 4, infertile "practice" eggs. If she stays broody, I have eggs in the bator on day 4 to put under her. It would be wonderful if this works, as it will be much easier to raise the babies with Mama in charge for the first few weeks. Either way, it will be good for the hen. She will either snap out of the broodiness and get about her normal business, or get the opportunity to hatch a batch of chicks and be a mom. I actually raised this Ameraucana from a chick and sold her to my friend. So she is actually back in her old stompin' grounds! Here is a pic from this morning...she is sitting tight!
