    I have an orpington that went broody a few days ago. Last time she stayed broody for a few weeks. I have no rooster. Should I order a few fertile eggs from mypetchicken and let her sit on them? Seems like an ok way to maybe get a rooster at the same time.

    Thanks for your thoughts

    If you want some wonderful little peeping balls of hilarious fluff around,definitely go for it.And since they won't be from a hatchery yes you'll have that chance to get a rooster!Good luck! [​IMG]
