are game hens a pretty broody breed? or is just the luck of the draw if they do go broody?
My Old English Game bantams are great with setting - almost too good. You may mean the large Modern Games though. I have no experience with them, but I have heard they will set.
im not exactly sure of what kind of game they are. it was a last minute kind of hey im in town and have a great deal on some gamesso i bought them, they are small though and give me medium size eggs
I've heard they were a pretty broody breed, but I've never had any. I have Silkies and they're rediculously broody!
My youngest pullet - she's only 6 months old and just started laying a month ago - has suddenly gone broody and is setting on eggs of her own as well as eggs from my other three hens. I think she's a game hen mixed breed - I got her as a chick and have no idea what her parents were. But she's pretty small and lays small-medium sized white eggs. She is setting the eggs in a cat carrier, and I have stopped trying to see how many eggs are under her - she's gotten vicious! And the sounds she makes when disturbed - she sounds like a velociraptor!
I think 6 months is pretty early to go broody, am I right?
yeah my OEGB is very broody she lays about 30 eggs then goes broody. she lays about every other day... I just kick her off the nest so shes not broody to long.
