So, what are the chances that a Pekin will sit and hatch a clutch of eggs? She's laying and made a nice nest- even kicked out the "fake" eggs (golf balls) that we stuck in her nest when we tried to get the hen to hatch some of her eggs- but the hen wasn't broody yet. She lays almost every day and has about 8 now, I think. If a chicken goes broody we are going to try that again since we have several that are great broodys, but it would be so cute to have the little duckies with their mommy. Usually we have chickens going broody all the time when we don't want them to, but of coarse, since we want them to now they aren't!
