    Hi my husband and I are quite new to keeping chickens we have five beautiful girls, we have had them four months now, Dotty, Florence, Rose, Doris and Madge, we bought them when they were at point of lay, bless them we have had at least four eggs a day ever since, Doris has been broody for about four weeks now, we are hoping she will return to her old self very soon. I found this site of great help especially the feeding chart, I'm looking forward to learning lots. I live in the village of Mildenhall, Wiltshire, United Kingdom.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens - what breeds do you have? There are ways to "break a broody," if you want to do so. Just put that in the searchbox and it should pop up.

    Or you could get fertile eggs to slip under her, or a chick or two to raise so she will feel fulfilled. Unfortunately, some breeds just keep going broody.
