i guess spring has finally sprung..... i have so many broodies
you are going to have so many babies!!!! i love how some of them look like the just picked any spot, like in the bucket! very funny!!
LOL, Congrats gotta love those broodies! I have 1 so far but give it awhile all my girls will be broody I wont have any eggs coming in anymore but I;ll have TONS of chicks..LOL
I have one broody and if I could be 100% sure that she was serious, I'd put some eggs under her.
I love the bucket broody!
Quote:well, if she is setting on the nest 24/7 with the exception of 15- 30 minutes a day for eating and such and her chest has less feathers than most and is hot to the touch and if she walks around with her wings out and clucks, than shes broody...... also a nest full of eggs will help speed up the process becuase a hen wont set on an empty nest
Put some fake eggs in the nest, if she sits on them consistently for a few days, chances are good she brood out a clutch for you.
P.s gooooooooooood luck!!!
i am gunna take one of my broodies tonight and give them goose eggs
Awwwww, that's so cute! I just love broody mamas and their babies. I love it too when the chicks are starting to peep in there shell and the mamas answer them.
