    The Broody hen and her troubles:

    By MillersFarm [​IMG]

    So i've been raising chickens all my live and never have i once had a hen go broody, so when ordering my chicks i added some light brahmas hearing that there a broody breed. almost a year goes bye and their first spring comes (bought them in later summer) one of my new hens go broody, but it wasnt my brahma. instead my Jersey Giant decided to go broody and so i waited a few days to make sure she was committed to it. Shes been laying on 20 eggs never getting off of them. i'd have to remove her from the nest to make her eat/drink.
    Today i was very nervous watching the weather outside as it was raining heavily. i went to check on her and everything with soaked! i checked under her and it was some-what dry so i put a towl over her, took all the eggs, and put them in a dry nest in the main coop, but i was very worried that the broody wouldnt except the nest.

    I gave her some small feeders/waterers and after a few seconds she sat right down on her eggs again [​IMG]
