    I have 2 eatser eggers and im still not sure on gender but i think i have a hen and roo..i have ducks and i know that most breeds dont go broody but my muscovey girls are sitting on nests..that is 1 still is the other was attacked by my dog and passed. Do you think easter eggers would go broody? do pretty much all chickens go broody if given the chance and conditions?

    I think some breeds go broody more often than others and I don't think EEs are noted for it. I have 4 that are a year old and they've never gone broody.

    You can use your ducks to hatch chicken eggs if they are brooding.

    How old are your EEs and do you have any pictures of them? [​IMG] [​IMG]
