    I've had my BO's for about 4 yrs now & they go broody.. alot. Since I've had my bantams.. they are worse than the Buffs [​IMG] I don't really have I clue what breeds they are,but they can just glance at a pile of eggs & they're broody. Even my little mutt bantams are like that. [​IMG]

    Wow, our Buff Orp is 2 now and has NEVER gone broody. Our Jersey Black Giant goes broody at the drop of a hat. [​IMG] So I understand about your bantams. Good luck!

    Oh geezzzz... I know what you mean. My banties are nightmares. They will all pile up together, on top of each other, fighting over one nest. It's just crazy. [​IMG] And don't even think about sticking your hand in there unless you want to lose a finger.
