    sorry all my girls get right off their eggs, but they share a couple nests so there is always another hen yelling at her to get out

    I have one! after 5 days of her determination I decided to let her keep some of her sister's eggs (as she's not laying right now). So far so good!

    I had a second hen joining in . . . so now they have 14 eggs that they split between the two of them. Don't want to give them more because then the eggs will be hatching too far apart :(

    I have Golden Laced Cochin Bantams and 4 have gone broody out of 9. 1 clutch has already hatched. My friend has had about 8 go broody and quite a few hatchings over there. He has all different kinds of chickens, none that are supposed to go broody though. He has like 40 adult chickens.
