Well as shocked as I was I noticed my 26 week old new pullet starting to show signs of broody. Clucking a lot, "calling" around the food, and not very friendly to the other hens. She did that for a week or so and then claimed her nest this weekend. If she is still stead on the nest today I am going to put fertile eggs under her I am thinking about putting up a small divider fence around her and her nest in the coop with food and water. I have large breeds(mostly BO) and I'm afraid 2 or three of them on the nest might damage her hatching eggs. Of course she picked a center nest to make this even more difficult lol. Potential problems with baby chicks this time of year? Any suggestions?
