To be honest, some hens have the maternal instincts right from the get-go and some don't. It's really a toss up whether your hen is going to be a good broody at this age or not. If you do decide to let her brood, I would suggest keeping an incubator and brooder ready, just in case she quits part way through incubation or decides she doesn't want to raise chicks once they've hatched. So, for the big reveal! Here is our newest addition, Emmy! She was a little unnerved by a cat walking by (outside of her quarantine, but within view) and stretched her neck out really far to keep an eye on him. She's entirely unimpressed with her quarantine pen. Don't worry, my dear, it's just a temporary thing. She's not much of a fan of attention, but she's probably also not feeling too friendly because of the move. I'm sure she'll warm up eventually. She's been letting me mess with her wattles and stroke her feathers, but she's just tolerating it as far as I can tell. She does not like me messing with her comb, though! Anyway, enjoy! I think I'd better get moving before a certain little ducky gets impatient for her bath time.
