After all my whining, I think I have a broody BUT not the broody I wanted. My RIR is on the nest and didn't come out for treats, she puffed up at me and screeched (thought I was gonna get pecked), then she started clucking and moving the eggs back under her. So I'll see if she's still on the nest tonight. (of course she's in the favorite nesting box) She's the nicest to people, but the meanest to other chickens, so not the ideal broody candidate. So here's my predicament. I've wormed them all as some of them were looking really thin, but were eating fine. (we have had cooler weather lately, so I thought it would be a good time) So it's day 6 of tossing the eggs. I'm assuming I can't let her hatch eggs until the 14 days are over, right? So I have to keep her in broody limbo for 8 more days? We do have someone that wants chicks, so I'm willing to try her out and see how she does at being a momma chicken. She'll raise them until they are feathered out, then the girls will go to our friend (they can't have roosters). Edited for clarification.
