Im sure there is a topic on here about this but I am awful with the search page and finding what I need! Could someone post a link to where there is info with how to deal with broody pet hens? I have 2 young hens that I want to know when the time comes how to deal with it. Obviously they will never be mommas and I cant give them fertile eggs because I dont know any one with chickens, I live in town, I dont wanna sell the chick and I dont wanna get attached to a chick and want to keep it. Do they just have an instinct to be a mom? How do they even KNOW that chicks come from eggs? Haha stupid question but if they never see it happen, how do they know its possible? THANKS!!
