One of my EE pullets has decided to go broody at 23 wks old and after laying for only 2 weeks!!
Aren't they at least suppose to wait until they're a little older!?

She only has one since I've been collecting the rest of them and I gave her my Silkie's from this morning, so that makes two. I won't give her any more, but I can always put those in the bator if she stops, since I have it running anyways!

I have one not much older then that that went broody about a week ago. She is doing pretty good but once in a while when she gets down to eat and poop she gets back on thewrong eggs! LMAO so I just put her back on the right ones.
(we have some hardboiled eggs in the nest boxes trying to get the girls to go into there..and thats what she started setting on...I have since given her 3 eggs to sit on)
