    My best broody....huge, patient, and an altogether lovely mum to 9 assorted chicks.

    Course she's your best broody. She's a brahma! (Says the non-broody brahmas owner [​IMG] )


    BTW, I happen to speak brahma fluently and in that first pic, she's telling you "come one step closer to my baby, I rip your face off" [​IMG]

    This girl is both a super mum and super friendly, thankfully....though she does look like an eagle!

    She went broody on the dog's bed (her usual laying place) and was happy with being moved. She hatched 4 chicks with the other 5 coming from the incubator. All I did was place the chicks in front of her. She stood up, spread her wings, under they went....adopted. She made a loud "Whooooooo...oooo" sound as if to say "Any more?"

    This hen is super docile

    Her daughter, Little grey has just gone broody, too. On the dog's bed, seen here with her best buddy and next best friend holding a discussion on the length of time left before her eggs hatch.

    I like their hen savers. I just received some in the mail. I am going to put them on the girls once the mud dries up since it just rained here Texas. [​IMG]
