    I Rhode island reds. I have four pullets should be laying in few weeks and I have a rooster at same age. Would it get broody, when it start laying eggs beacuse I want to naturally incubate eggs. So any ideas! how to get them broody?[​IMG]

    I have never known of a RIR that has gone broody, but it can happen

    Put four golf balls in one nest, perhaps that will stimulate one of them to go broody.

    My RIR went broody a month after she started laying.
