How long does it take for a buff option and a jersey giant to get broody?
It really just depends on the bird and environment including temp and length of days. I have had hens go broody in a few days after laying eggs but sometimes eggs will be in the coop/nest for several weeks and a hen/hens may never goes broody.
When you have multiple chickens how do you get one hen broody and not 2 or 3 broody?
Odds are they all won't go broody at the same time but if they do you can just remove the eggs from under the hens you don't want broody and get them out of the area of the nest preferably another coop.
Thankyou for ur help. I got a broody hen!
Congrats make sure you post some pics of the babies coming soon.
16 days in she wasn't broody anymore we did everything correct we took her off her nest to drink eat and poop.
