I have never (I think) had a broody hen. My hens are 3-1.5 years old and to my knowledge, I can't remember any of my hens ever sitting in their nest boxes for an extended time. I can't tell if it's because they normally run around the yard and don't stay near the coop with boxes, or whether the hens just really aren't the broody types. I have 2 RIRs, 1 BR, 3 EEs. We have no roosters since they are not allowed in our area. However, if I did have a hen go broody, then I would buy some fertilized eggs and get them under her! Would love to have my hens raise their own chicks instead of me doing it What are my chances of getting a broody, d'ya think?
