Best picture ever LW!
Chicken math struck again! Argh! Now I have 3 SLW
what if I put the eggs in a nest and put one particular hen in there? has anyone forced a hen broody?
In the next two years I plan on moving. Right now in Arizona. Fill in love with the Llano, Tx area. West of Temple, South of I-20, closer to I-10. No further West then Juction. I've spent a few nights in the Llano area. How chicken friendly are they? Any area's not to look at, unfriendly to chickens? I have 12, hope to expand to non-pets chickens and a couple of Roos. Any advise? Any really good chicken friendly places?
I live in Fort Worth and have a chicken tractor. Still waiting for my girls to lay their first eggs!
Sarg I put all the eggs my Turkeys were laying into the nest that one of the turkey hens was laying in after three days and thirteen days later the hen I who nest I put all the eggs in went broody, not sure if it will work for you but you can try
I'm out here in Bastrop they are pretty chicken friendly
Don't know about "forcing " a hen to go broody, I doubt it would work, would just stress the hen and have the opposite affect. Like Chucklecluck said you give them something to sit on, in a place that they like, and this will "encourage" someone who has the inclination to start sitting.
Thats about the best you can do, if there was a way to "force" a hen to be broody, on your schedule, I think we'd all be doing it. No more expensive incubator.
ROFLMAO!! Great Picture!! Love it!
i recognize those guys!!
