Believe me, when my hen went broody this spring I was elated!! Got 11 fertile eggs from a friend, she hatched 10! What a wonderful few weeks we had watching all of this! Yes, more work but worth it. Now she has gone broody again, and so has another of my flock of 15! (and the 10 babies - soon to be down to just 3) What do you guys think? should I get more fertile eggs?, order some special breed fertile eggs? or, STOP this broodiness???????? My coop is big enough, though cleaning every day is more of a pain with more chickens. I'm giving away 7 of the spring babies, but how many friends can one find to give away chickens to?
