I have a few questions about hatching out under a broody hen. First of all my most important question is how do i encourage or make my hens lay eggs, if they wont how do i tell which ones arent (i only have 5 hens). No onto the hating phase, so should i keep the hen in the normal coop until she goes broody and then move her adn the eggs to another coop or should i put a hen in the other coop to start with and try to make her broody? which leads to my next question, what is the most effective way or how do i make my hens broody? which would be the best of my chickens to make go broody, i have 2 copper marans which i know are laying and 2 barre rock which are smaller birds and im pretty sure arent laying, i also have 1 buff orpington which is moderately to small in size and im not sure if she is laying or not. sorry for so many question i just want to do it right the first time. Please respond im very curious to know!!!
