    I have several young birds hatched already, but my scovies are going crazy brooding right now
    some hatched today and some just went broody today

    I read that they are late season layers

    but is it too late in the year to let them go broody? will it be too cold in a month when the babies hatch
    or trust them and let them do their thing?

    I also have one that just went broody in the last few days. she made a nest under the coop in the dirt & old bedding. I think that will really help keep in the warmth but I know this girl is a GREAT broody so I am not too worried.
