OK guys, here's the deal--- I would like to order some more babies and put them under a broody hen ASAP. However, I don't have anybody broody--- heck!--- I only have 12 week olds! They are supposed to start laying in Sept sometime, and I would love them to go broody in the couple of months after that, so here is my question.... Is it reasonable to expect super broody breeds (like Cochins) to go broody within a few months of just STARTING to lay? The problem is the hatchery that I order from, that sexes bantams, and ships small numbers of them (both of which I NEED!) are not going to be carrying the breeds I want to order next spring. So it is either put them under a broody girl in Oct-Nov-Dec or have them in a brooder in my house in the next month (which I DO NOT want to do!-- I just got these babies out, and they were great, but I really want my kids to see how a hen raises her babies and teaches them!) Thanks!
