I was carrying one of my Jersey Giants around and discovered that her lower stomach is totally bald! I know that's a sign of broodiness, but that's the only one: she's not sitting on the nest any longer than usual and she lets me take her eggs away. I'm sort of interested in letting her raise a brood when the weather gets a bit warmer. If I stuck her in a pen with a clutch of eggs would she sit on them, you think? Or should I make sure she's sitting first?
