    Hey guys I got a broody hen . If you remember me from oct/nov I've come along a bit :)
    If you have tips for a broodynewbie like me, post here. Also I have one egg she is on that was fridged for 2or3 hrs, and another one for 25/27 hrs. Are these okay? Thx

    Okay and also today she is not on her 3 eggs (she laid). I heard that hens lay a clutch before brooding cans I thought mine was just unusual... Anyways, is she really broody.?. Sitting on eggs, laying, then ( i. Guess) sitting on eggs. Can you clear this up? Thx


    UPDATE-- i put eggs in house (coop a bit chilly) and hopefully she will sit again. i hope that my dreams were crushed by a 1-day brooody hen...
