I now have four broodies! One of them is a pullet that hatched a chick (didn't need anymore chickens so only allowed her the one) in March! Now she's broody again. And three of the four broodies are sharing the same nest. I just have a small flock of bantams. One rooster and 7 ladies. I just don't have the space for more. I intend to "break" the two broody pullets first. I will let one of the hens hatch no more than four eggs. The other hen has never been broody before but seems willing to share the duty so I might let her set also. These two hens are #1 and #2 in the pecking order and one of them is experienced in raising chicks and is an excellent mother. I can always send the excess chicks to auction, I guess.
