    We had three or four go broody last year. I let them sit on duds. I feel that one of these days I may want to hatch a few. And now that we have a drake…..handsome, fairly mellow boy.

    I look forward to seeing everyone's broody progress ! good thread [​IMG] . I cant wait till all my girls start to lay and brood. It will be all of there first year. But, it will be awhile yet. We are currently in frozen hell up here in northern Wisconsin. [​IMG] ALLOT of snow and has been a nasty cold winter.

    We're starting to get eggs but no one is interested in brooding just trying to live through the frigid weather is on every ones mind right now, I don't know how ya'll deal with it further north, ya'll are some hardy folks is all I can say.
