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!!
