Tim Thank you so much for your time, my super stubborn broody is a Black Australorp! Please don't apologize for being "long winded" you have perfect verbage and spelling what a delight to read! Well now I guess I'm on the hunt for some fertile eggs, that don't get broody. She will be an eggcellent mother! Again thanks Lynette PS I love my golden sex-link she's the perfect chicken!
