Ok I am going to try to see if I can get a hen to go broody. I know some people say no way you can not. Well I am going to try and see if I can. I put 1 doz pretty wooden eggs in one of my nesting boxes, very nice eggs I bought off ebay. I guess we will have to wait and see. I have 25 hens. I bought fake ones because I was scared to leave all my real ones out in the boxes, all I need was to end up with egg eaters.
