So, the broody that hatched out the one chick in June finally weaned him a few weeks ago, and I think I've gotten a total of 10 eggs from her. Today, I think she's broody again. She's on the nest, pancaked out, giving me the stink eye and tried to amputate my hand when I checked under her for eggs. (She left a bruise!) She did this two years ago. Hatched in June, broody again in August. Everything in me says, "You've got a broody, use her!" But I think I'm already maxed out for the winter. On the other hand, last time she did this was two years ago. I didn't let her hatch that August, and she didn't go broody at all last year. I thought I'd broken her for good. I already have 10 pullets and a cockerel for each coop this winter (one has 8x8' living space, the other is 10x16', and can be divided into 10x7' or so pens.) Such a dilemma! I'm all for cockerels to butcher, but I hate to butcher pullets... What do y'all think - to hatch, or not to hatch?
