    I don't currently have a broody. What I do have is a feather duster and new chicks. I've hung the duster upside down and my babies have a broody momma. When I come into the barn, they all disappear under their momma. Its made me feel great that I could *mother* them like this and its worked out wonderfully! These are banties which I've never had before. Hoping for some wonderful broodies. Here's to an idea that worked for me!!

    It is cute, all I see are heads and beaks. Having not done this before, its worked out so well for our babies and the heat can be turned down a bit to allow for them warming themselves under the Mom.
