    I have broody pandemic running through my flock.

    I have 29 hens and 9 of them are broody and I think two more are sort of broody, they run around making that clucking noise broodys make.
    I can't think of a time I have had so many, I have kept a flock of about 30 hens for about 10 years now and this is the most I have had at any one time. I don't have enough cage room to try to break them all. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My hands look like I have been in a fight with a blackberry bush [​IMG]

    Just had to vent.

    I've got 18 hens and 3 ducks. 5 have hatched out chicks. Had to give 1 some chicks. 3 hens and 2 ducks are broody and on eggs right now!!! [​IMG] I feel you frustration. Even the fish in the pond are getting it on right now. Spring has definitely SPRUNG!!! [​IMG] Hopefully the other 9 hens don't get any ideas. [​IMG]
