    Is there anyway to encourage a hen to go broody?

    I picked up silvers and regulars, thinking if the silvers are weak (as I've read in places), some outcrossing vigor would help. Good luck on your project!


    I just loved the little bobwhites last year. Looking forward to more quail. I ordered me some egg scissors for easy opening/eating of the eggs. Should be a fun project. They're easier and quicker to process than chickens and you can make cute little stuffed quail and quail poppers and (someone needs to get off the quail cooking sites).

    Woot! [​IMG]

    Coolest thing bout Buttons is they can be encouraged to go broody fairly easily, unlike Coturnix.
