    What was your longest setting broody. Doesn't have to be on the same clutch..... My blue Ee hen just finished being broody after six months and hatching out many different clutches of chicks. I just kept sticking some under her as she was unmovable...... Lol

    My Mallard hen was broody for all of spring and summer [​IMG]. She just got off the nest in mid August.
