    Saucier,Ms.
    has anyone ever tried to let a chicken sit and hatch quail eggs?

    I have a broody and was wondering how/if it would work?

    I have no personal experience but I believe some folks on here have used a broody silky to hatch the chicks. A big butt chicken might be too much for those fragile little eggs imo [​IMG]
