How often do hens go broody? I have 5 hens that are 20 weeks old and just got a lot rooster today. They are not together yet. But I would love so cute little chicks. And does it matter if I place her eggs under her or any eggs. A a neighborhor has some rir that I'm trying to get her to give to me when the time is right. And then what should I do when she does? Removed from here nest or leave here their?
