    What are some good things to feed a broody hen? I noticed that when Nibbles sat her nests she'd always drop some weight and i'd like to avoid that in the cold weather.

    any suggestions?

    Everyone is getting All Purpose Poultry (from Dels), it's higher in protien than the layer feed & has been working well for the ducks & chickens. But i want to keep them healthy while they set too.

    I think the universal nutritious duck treat is peas! [​IMG]
