Yesterday I noticed that my blue cochin, Big Blue has gone broody!!!! She's sitting in the laying boxes doing her thing. So I gave her the other eggs that were in the boxes and she took to them beautifully, she nudged them right under her. I can't believe she's broody, she's only 29 weeks old! But I am tickled pink. After all of the heartache of loosing so many I finally have a hen that has decided to replenish the flock! She's so cute the way she is squealing at me and the other chickens. She's like, leave me alone, I'm doing my thing here, get lost!! How many eggs do you think I should give her to set? It's been so long since I've had a broody hen, someone refresh my memory. I guess I'm guilty of taking her clutch since there were no signs of her being broody. But I'd like her to hatch as many as possible.
