    Hi, well I did it....my broody hen has been removed from the "public" nesting boxes(all of my other hens use it too) to an private suite of her own. She has room service and also has been supplied with 14 EE eggs for her to hatch. She is quite a big girl and so,they all fit nicely under her. She has the privledge of having the delux nest...complete with a cushiony soft queen sized bed of hay.

    Haha..anyway, lets see what happens in 21 days,might have some babies.

    Quote:Thank you so much. I LOVE my chickens and have been obsessed with them since I've gotten them. I was told that 2 of my hens are broody hens and good mothers,so I couldn't wait until they went broody. Only one has(I wasn't told which hens were broody hens). Anyway, I am eggsited about her hatching some eggs for me. Can't wait. I do have 12 in the bator also(day 20). No pips yet.[​IMG]
