I posted this in the incubating eggs section, but thought the folks here might know too. I've got a 10mo old heritage hen who appears to have gone broody. She's barely left the next box for 3 days and stopped laying 3 days ago. Sits very quiet, very low, just stares off. Not quite like a chicken, but seems broody to me! Questions: 1. Some folks have reported with chickens that their first time broodies lose interest after a few days. Is this common with turkeys, should I avoid setting her on eggs until I know she's serious? 2. I don't actually have any toms, but I'd like to set her on chicken eggs. Is this possible, both in respect to incubation differences, weight and size of hen (probably 10-12lbs, in good health), and her method of raising the chicks? 3. She's in the *favorite* lay box, I've got 25 other birds coming and going. Can I move her to her own pen and own small coop to brood chicks, or will moving her break her broodiness? 4. What can I do to encourage her broody instincts and/or avoid discouraging her? Thanks!
