Tried to find a thread like this but didn't have any luck. Feel free to send me a link if you know of one. Last Oct I had a hen go broody, I ended up getting a three chicks for her- she raised them really well- I didn't have to do much at all it was super nice! Those chicks are now two roo's and a hen. We'd like to get a few more chicks (4-5) but no one is broody at the moment. What is the chance that she'd raise another batch for me even if she's not broody right now? Anyone willing to share their with experience with this would be great! Last fall we just went out at night and snuck the little fluffy butts under her and she just purred and shuffled them underneath her and never looked back! We want to have that same successful situation again but don't want to endanger any new chicks. Should we wait to introduce the new chicks to her until after we've gotten rid of the roo's?? Thoughts??
