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. My hands look like I have been in a fight with a blackberry bush Just had to vent.
