    So i have 3 broody in my coop. i have decided to give them some eggs and let them be mama.

    my question is that one of those chicken was crazy she use to flight here and there so i clipped one of her wings flight feathers. so now she has gone broody, i m woring about clipped feathers being a problem

    will this effect the incubation?:fl

    That won't affect incubation at all as long as all you did was clipped the feathers. I can't think it's anything other than a coincidence. :)

    I thought you were also wondering if clipping her wings resulted in her going broody. It looks like I misunderstood that part. That's what I meant was probably just a coincidence. lol

    But either way clipped wings won't affect incubation at all.
