    I have one setting now and I didn't think they were the broody type.

    Oh, yeah, they ARE the broody type. [​IMG] Definitely. I've had three go broody so far this year, and two more are half-clucky now. It depends on the strain, but some are very broody.

    Quote:Cyn, most of those eggs have broody on both sides of the family (the male is out of the broody in my avatar). So, I'd say you really have a good shot at it if you hatch any girls [​IMG]

    I have a BLRW that won't stay off the nest.I think she may have finally broke this time cause she is molting.
