Should i let her brood?

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by chloezoebob101, Feb 4, 2012.

  1. i was collecting eggs this morning to set tomorrow. it would be my very first time incubating. well, on my afternoon checkup, out of the blue i had a broody hen. she squawked and squealed and wanted no part of me then. So i was wondering if I should let her brood. she's a new timer and has never showed interest in eggs. So should i? You never know, she might not give up on it.
