    I'm about to buy some chicken hatching eggs. Before I actually say I want them, I want to know if you can make a hen go broody. I have Salmon Faverolles and they seam to keep going broody, but I'm worried that they won't be broody when I get them. Is there a trick or something I can do to be positive they will be broody and hatch the eggs.
