    so one of my BOs just started going broody the other day.. and my dad was like!! no. no. no. we dont have a rooster so its not like she could hatch anything anyways.. we have only had one other broody hen and he thinks that it makes them look aged when they are done. i was like [​IMG] do u know how cool it is to have a broody!! think of the possibilitys!!

    its WAY easyer than an incubator.. no turning.. humidity... anthing! and once the chicks hatch i was going to take them away ( i know some people dont aprove of that) and sell them. ( keep a few tho) so i can make a litle money and have a few more of my favorite birds!! ..

    i mean.. i feel honored to have a broody. and i fully intend to use her to my advantage [​IMG] ( please dont hurt me )
