I am wondering if there is something I can do to encourage one of my hens to broody up. I have SLW, RIR, EEer, Partridge Rocks and BRs . I would like my EEer or my RIRs to broody- but I am not sure if there is something I can do to help that along? Also- does anyone know how long after a roo mates that the eggs would have his "seed"? I have a SLW roo (getting to be mean) and a PRs roo who is nice. The SLW is my dom roo- but I would like to use my PR roo.... He mates a lot less tho- and I would have to pen him up with some hens. How long should I pen him up with them before I just leave the eggs and are assured they are his offspring? Thanks!
