    They come from 2 flocks that I keep. One flock is Bourbon Reds the other is Bronze Hens with bourbon Red males. The Bronze male does not breed. You would get eggs from both flocks. What ever is picked up the day your order is filled.

    Thank you for asking Herm

    Do you always use a bator for hatching? Do your bourbon reds every brood their own? I want bourbon reds but I want some from a flock that has/had broody hens.

    My hens do go broody. But I have had problems with any breed of turkey hatching their own eggs. They are so heavy they step on them. I dont have any breeding hens fo sale at this time.
    Thanks for your intrest Herm

    I am not asking for hens. Just curious if your hens do go broody. I would be interested in eggs.

    Yes they will go broody. If the eggs are not picked up they will go broody. Since I pickup the eggs during my hatching season they don't go broody untill Sept. but if the eggs are not picked up they might go broody in the spring.
