I have a bantam barred cochin mamma chicken. I ahve 49 other little 10 week olds. I am wanting to but some cochin hatching eggs and let her sit on them. I just want a chicken to go broody. I ahve never had this happen and just one time would like to do it. If you all could please help me, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks ahead of time.

No way to make, or help one go broody that I know of, but standard cochins go broody quite easily for the most part. I have no idea if bantams are similar in that respect of not. There is hope of course, very much so!

I agree. There's no way to make them broody, but have a brood house/pen ready for when they do, and then buy your eggs. It'll happen!!!
