    You can try, but there is no guarantee she will go broody on you.

    You can't "make" a hen go broody if she doesn't feel like being broody.
    Mine go broody at the most inconvenient times, like when I have a huge list of customers wanting fresh eggs. LOL

    Quote:Thats what I am afraid of.....I have 11 RIR.mix hens, that are currently laying between 10 and 11 eggs a day. My orders have increased, so I bought Buff Orps for fall laying. I set 27 eggs in the bator...and i just KNOW my girls are going to go broody on me....UGH, they BETTER NOT!!
