So I've been wondering, could I MAKE one ofe my hens broody? The three breeds I have are Australorp, barred rock, americauna, and one mix breed that isn't even laying yet. I want to get my spring hatch on, but my bator is full and I'm not really into WAITING for one of my girls to go broody! I want to get her broody asap, I've tried letting their eggs pile up in the nest boxes, until one of them thinks they have enough to set, but this didn't work , the eggs were in there 2 weeks, and it was just a waste of eggs, however, I did manage to fit two of them in the incubator, though only one is developing. :/ But how can I force one of my girls into broodiness? Thanks in advance.
