    Broody poop is one of the most awful, disgusting things ever, not to mention STINKY!!!! [​IMG]

    I can't wait to see pictures, please share them. I loved my Broody and it was so cute to see her with the chicks!!

    Good Luck! My broody hen just hatched off her eggs and right before she brought the babies out of the nest for the first time she made a HUGE broody poo in the nest box. [​IMG]
