    Is there anyway to encourage bantys to go broody early? I mean before they do it by themselves? I have 8dozen duck eggs in the incubator, and I am still getting more. I would really appreciate a couple of my broody bantys. I am also getting turkey eggs that I want brooded.

    I put red heat lamp in a small coop with them, leave all the eggs in the nest, and they usually go broody within days
