    I just had my Japanese Bantam hen Anna, go broody for the 2nd time and I'm not sure what to give her. I have 13 Coturnix Quail eggs that she has under her right now and they are due to hatch on June 9th or I could give her 7 chicken eggs due to hatch on July 17 I want advice on what would be easier for her. Thank you!!!

    I would give her the chickens and incubate the coturnix yourself because i think she would likely smother the coturnix chicks

    True. I was thinking the same. Thanks I'll see what more people think as well.
