I have a broody Australorp hen and no rooster for her (besides my Bantam Cochins and they try but, that's another story). I found two of my little bantam cochin eggs and thought I would let my Australorp hatch them out since she is wanting to sit. My other thirteen Australorp hens should be able to carry on laying and keeping us in eggs just fine. What do all you BYC-ers think? First time momma - is it worth a shot? I will move her to a big dog crate if she continues to be good brody momma. Thank you!
