Related question. Does the introduction of a rooster trigger broodiness? One of this year's batch of chicks turned out to be a Mr. Pullet. Living in NC, we're trying to decide how to handle the HB2 bathroom issue, but so far, none of the other pullets and hens have complained. I do have a 2 yr old hen that has gone broody. First one in 3 years I've had go broody. Up to this point, I've only kept hens, and not really setup for incubating, etc. So... back to my original question. Does the addition of a rooster to a hen-only flock trigger broodiness?
