As I'm sitting here watching it rain, I start day-dreaming about spring, and with that comes ideas about hatching out turkeys. My question is: how hard is it to convince a hen to go broody? We have three BR hens who will be a year old this spring. They have already surprised us with a few pullet eggs. Our two toms breed them, or at least love trying, so I think the eggs should be fertile. I'd really like to get one of the hens to set on a clutch and raise the poults on her own, and I'm wondering if there's anything we should do to make it easier for the hens to develop broody instincts. I've read a bunch of old threads here on BYC on this topic, so I have ideas for nest boxes, etc., but I welcome any suggestions anyone has. Thanks!
