    This is Carmel my Dark cornish she is going to be three in May. She's been incredibly broody ever since we had to put her sister, Butterscotch to sleep ( she was a Dark Cornish too). Is there any solutions for broodyness?

    Well, you could try shocking the broodiness out of her, I've read if you put her in a different coop(I don't know if you have one..) THat might work.. but she's cute![​IMG]

    You could always just let her hatch all of your chicks for you, then let her raise them till adult hood. That will give her something to do besides being broody! [​IMG]

    You could either buy a grown rooster off of Craig's list or order fertilized eggs.

    I'm told most of the time fertilized eggs are most likely to be roosters, and my property is too close to my neighbors.

    not a problem. Let her sit on some fake eggs for a bit and order some pullet chicks. At night slip the pullet chicks under and take the eggs away. She will think the eggs hatched and hopefully adopt the pullet chicks.
