hello chicken people. first of all i LOVE this forum - i've learned a lot in a short period of time. thank you to everyone who participates in the forum - it's awesome. so my first not-so-dumb question is this: i've read that the ratio of roosters to hens ought to be 1:10 yes? what if you have one rooster and LESS than 10 hens? will the rooster pester the hens too much? my incredibly dumb question is this: can someone define the term "broody" for me? clearly it has something to do with reproduction but i can't figure out exactly what it means. (go ahead, laugh, i know, i know). thanks all!
