    What do you all think about having a certain place to poston here when your hen has gone broody,and let another byc,er[close by] to use your hen to hatch their eggs? or post they are looking for a broody for their eggs, etc, would you do it, of course have rules before you do it , as in must take all hatched chicks boys and girls, not get mad or upset if some dont hatch etc!!! What do you think!!!!

    Because I would love to buy some fertile eggs of my favorite breeds, but not to great with an incubator, so I would let someones broody hatch them out and them offer them a chick or two!

    as long as the rules were very clear, in writing from the start, it might work out just fine!

    I'd do it to keep from having to break a broody. And goodness knows, I don't need more chicks this year.

    Oh when I get my chicks and their big enough to go broody I'm sooooo IN! I just love their little "cheeps" such a sweet noise and since I want a BO she'll more than likely get broody!
