i know they say that you cant 'make' a hen broody but ive recently hatched some eggs in my incubator, they are now just about a week old and i have moved them to a nice brooder in my shed, and its right next door to my coop and run so they can probably all hear one another.... but suddenly ive had 3 hens go broody! one of which has never been broody before, i just wondered if the sounds of peeping chicks could have done this or if its just a weird coincidence? has anyone had this happen? im excited either way as i have more eggs that need hatching a adoptive hen would make it so much easier!
