So... Tawanda, my 8 mo. old gold sex link, has been broody for the past 2 weeks or so. I thought I had broken her because I saw her outside one day acting normal, but the next day she was right back in the next box sitting on everyone else's eggs! I know it's probably too late to slip some fertile eggs under her, but is it okay to give her some day old or 3 day old chicks to raise? Someone recommended this on another thread I was reading, but I was wondering if anyone has done this and if it's a good idea. The other thing is I know I can get 3-day olds, but I'm not sure where to find 1-day old chicks. Would that work? Also, I live in TX and figured it shouldn't be too cold down here (weather's still in the 80s most of the time) Is it better to wait until spring to give her some chicks? ACK! So many questions! I have no one to talk to about this except on this forum, so a big THANK YOU to all you helpful peeps!
