My poor broody hen rotted all her eggs, but still won't break her brood. She officially weighs less then half of what she did when she started. In a last ditch effort to get her to stop setting I figured- why not get her some chicks? But the only thing in the area are fluffy feather footed things. . So I figure, Ideal always has specials- might as well pick some up! Now 25 chicks will be here next week. How does this happen? We already have 50 chickens! Only 10 of them lay eggs! We do not need more eggs! You guys think a 40 gallon water tub will be big enough for them? It's about 2ish ' wide and 4ish ' long. We have to raise this batch indoors so we can't use the usual brooders.
