    well, i have a broody bourbon red whos been setting since tuesday and

    she is in a rubber feed bowl thing behind the small coop. i am not

    concerned about her but if anyone has any advice that would be great! [​IMG]



    but i do have a concern becuase as of this morning i cant find one of my

    narrangassetts. i think she has gone broody somewhere but ive looked
    all over and cant find her [​IMG] ... if she is broody, whan will she come to

    eat and drink so i can follow her back to her nest?... just to make sure its

    safe..... hopefully i will be able to find her!

    You need to be very concerned if you have as many coyotes and bobcats as we do around here. A free ranging broody around here becomes lunch. Hope you can find her and get her to a safe place.

    Cool. glad she is ok. How many eggs did she have or did you get a chance to count? Looking forward to seeing the pics.

    Turkeys are masters at hiding nests. I've nearly stepped on a few hens before I realized how well they were hidden.

    She won't sit until she has about 8 or more in it. I've had them sit on as many as 14 at once.
