    I have broody hens. I have 3 new girls that have gone broody this makes the grand total this year of 10 broodys. [​IMG]
    Get you some golf balls put 3 or 4 per nest.
    This is a good year for them its been mild weather.
    I'm going to set 2 of them with eggs this weekend. If they want to set I'm going to set them. I just need for someone to give me some chick tractors. And I'd be good to go.[​IMG]
    I'm sending broody vibes your way. [​IMG]
    The breeds of my hens are American game hens and American game cross hens, and a pure black australorp hen.
