    When ever they go broody, you can't make them go broody when you want them to (normal the exact opposite [​IMG] )

    So you mean it would be ok any time of the year even in the middle of the winter?
     
  5. I wouldnt put any eggs under them in the winter months but if they lay their own eggs and go broody they usually do fine in a draft free coop.
