I have set Many broody hens in my time, got a little more serious into chickens in 2013, 2014 and 2015 with more than 150 broody hens set those 3 years alone. I have set and had broody hens as far back as in the 1960's/ Love them Broody hens.
The bird-flu scare closed down a lot of Auctions in my driving area so I sold most of my flock before the Auctions closed. Even though we had a bird-flu scare again a couple months back for a while, I have about 150 chickens(most young) right now with the thoughts of raising a lot again??
Wow that's a lot of chickens I only have 14 and one broody,but I think it's spreading because I keep hearing broody noises from a chicken that is not the original broody hen I don't which one but I think I will soon. You should definitely get more chickens I would if I had the space. I have a question of my own can I separate my hen in a fairly large box I don't want her to poop in her nest and I want her to get some exercise
