    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?

    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.
