So, this is my first post. First, I would like to say that I love this website. I've been reading it for a number of weeks and it has answered lots of questions for me. Now the question... I have a horribly mean hen. But she is an excellent mother. Goes broody constantly. She attacks me, my son, the dog, other chickens. (With or without babies by her side!). My current list of chickens is 3 sex link hens that are laying (they're over 2 years old). The rest are pullets around 15 weeks, RIR's, Cuckoo Marans, Buff Orphingtons, Black Jersey Giants, a barred rock and 2 Golden Campines. As well as a RIR rooster, a Cuckoo Maran rooster and 2 Black Jersey Giant roosters that are separate from the flock of hens. Should I... Keep her forever, keep her until another hen shows a tendency toward broodiness or put her in a pot? I'll never let her raise her own babies cause they're as mean as she is. But I would use her to hatch other eggs of higher quality. But she's so mean! What would you do with her? Thanks!
