    Well Our Freedom Rangers are laying fertile eggs, and Instead of me hatching in the incubator, Id love for a broody hen to do it! None of Our Girls are broody though [​IMG]
    Anyone have a larger sized broody girl for sale or free?
    Thanks for reading.

    I have a white orpington broody hen she is about 2 years old and is stealing eggs like crazy. She is yours if you want to come get her. Not too sure how far I am from you. I am in Ashby MA.

    The only problem with getting a hen that is currently broody is that you'd probably 'break her up' by moving her. I'd suggest 'renting' one that you can put your eggs under, then if she is available to buy, doing so after the chicks hatch [​IMG]
