I have 3 BO hens and one has been broody repeatedly, with very few breaks, since March or April. I've tried everything....keeping her out in the yard all day while the other 2 stay in the run, a homemade broody breaker, even just leaving her to brood and carrying her out into the run once a day to make sure she eats and drinks. It's no use, and now NONE of my hens are laying, I suppose because of the disruptions in pecking order, etc? I don't think I've gotten 2 dozen eggs total ALL SUMMER, and they haven't even been laying a full year yet. So I'm thinking about getting like 4 fertilized Red Star eggs from Murray McMurray and putting them under her. It looks like if I order today I won't get them until Sept. 2nd. I live in coastal NJ, and I'm unsure if it's too late in the summer to have baby chicks hatching. By November it's quite cold at night, and I don't want baby chicks in the house again this year. I know nothing about baby chicks and established flocks, as last year was our first batch of chicks (we bought already-hatched) and I've never done this before. Should I wait until next late spring, or will they be ok?
