This is the first time i've had a hen go truely broody. Usually they set for a couple of days, then get bored and wander off. But now my goofy Frenchie has decided to go broody in the dead of winter. I didn't think much of it at first, And so I never thought to mark the calender as to when she started. But I think it has been more than 3 weeks now, and notihing has happened. Although, she did drop most of the early ones down a crack before I gave her a better box to sit in. So how long will she sit there hoping for a result? And, once the chickies hatch (if they do hatch) what will I do with them? I considered putting them all in a quarentine pen in my basement until nicer weather.
