Ive got a 4yr old that does not lay anymore, but is continuously broody. I have broken her at least 4 times since spring, and I just walked out there this morning to see her all puffed up and growling again. Shes always a month on, and a month off. I've got her sister broody too, so I think this time I'll just split the eggs and let them both have some. Do people actually buy hens just for their broodiness? Or will they end up killing them after they stop for the winter?
