    I dont think they would continue to sit after being moved to anther house but I guess you can try it.

    It will probably break her broodiness to move her. Don't forget about quarantine of at least 30 days. Can you borrow an incubator instead?

    I'm not interested in running another bator that's why I'm looking for a broody.

    If anyone has one please let me know

    Where are you at? If you're close by to me you can throw them in my Dickey. It's no where near full.

    im located near the casino in charles town... i think im a bit full but thanks for the offer. i posted on craigslist and found a nice production red that had been sitting for over a week. i picked her up after dark set her up a little "broody cave" (dog cage with hay lol) and she plopped right down!!

    i may need you in the future though.... im always over buying lol

    thanks again!!

    Ps- i may still be interested in a broody prone hen for certain cases such as this.
