    I have my first broody hen and she is only sitting on 1 egg. We went to our local poultry auction and they had some hatching eggs. I bid on a dozen americana eggs and won the bid. So my husband says let's go look at an incubator just in case the hen doesn't want to sit on the egg anymore. So we got one. We put 6 eggs under the hen and the others in the bator. Wish us luck. This is the first time we are doing this. woohoo....

    You'll never be happy just hatching out a dozen. Better build a bigger brooder! [​IMG]

    Or hope she gets more girls that lean toward broodiness.

    Who needs eggs for breakfast when you can hatch them instead? [​IMG]

    You better start thinking about an incubator. If you are this excited over a broody bird, you are hooked and there is no cure.
