I was excitedly telling my friend that I have a broody, and he said so does he. He doesn't have a rooster and has been taking the eggs that she gathers each day. He says he has been doing this for 2 months. Today I gave his broody 9 fertile eggs from my hens for her very own, and marked them so he won't take them from her. Now I am wondering if my friend's hen is going to be strong enough to make it through another 3 weeks. What do you think?
