In the Brooder
- Nov 27, 2011
I have read about broody hens and am wondering. When they go broody, they just stay on their nest all day and won't move? The reason I am asking is because this spring I am thinking about possibly getting fertilized eggs and letting a hen hatch them for us. Does that turn out well, the hen hatching not her egg? I also read some where that some hens are broodier than others. I have Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks, are they a broody breed or should I just think about getting chicks? Thank you!
